Following the postponement, Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade has reacted to the postponement of the election and poor treatment of youth corpers who were registered adhoc INEC staff for the election exercise.

The mum-of four questioned parents who allow their university graduate children participate in the ‘compulsory’ one year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme, which sends graduates to many extremes to fulfil the provisions of the scheme, which has equally claimed the lives of many in the process.

The actress was irked by the same photos of stranded corpers that has sparked reactions from other Nigerians, she wrote in one post:

‘I still maintain what I said about this program some years Ago. Is this compulsory?

Why do you accept to do this and put yourself in harms way?

Why do parents Allow their children do this?

INEC is this how you should threat ppl’s children “serving” Nigeria? #NYSC’.

‘Until we are all individually ready to be defiant and stand against injustice and degradation, these Abuses won’t stop.

It starts in the Mind.

Rise above the excuses, the “pity me” , ” its hustle” , ” its poverty” syndrome .

You’re worth More. What more can I say. Im exhausted’.
