Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN), a non-governmental and uniformed youth organization that focuses on orientation of the populace, has said that it would not participate on the forthcoming November 18 gubernatorial election as observer.

According to Anambra State Commandant of PCN, Patriot Andrew Okpokwasili, the group would not be playing a role as a corporate body in the poll since it was yet to receive an official invitation either from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) or Anambra State government.

Okpokwasili, who spoke in an interview with newsmen during the 2017 passing out parade of over 9000 new officers of the commandant recently held in Awka, however, maintained that not receiving invitation would not stop them from voting in the election as electorate.

The Commandant, while adding that the NGO was a non partisan organisation, charged both the newly inducted and old officers of the commandant to continue in propagating peace education orientation which PCN is known for in order to help Nigerian youths to channel their potential towards national creativity, peace and rational innovation.
