The Director-General of National Youth Service Corps NYSC, Shuaibu Ibrahim, has expressed concern over recent controversy on the dress code for corps members.
In a statement issued by Adenike Adeyemi, NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Ibrahim urged corps members to always adhere to the dress code.
Ibrahim said that the national NYSC camp, predicated on discipline and decency, is a training ground for corps members.
According to him, it will be reprehensible for a female corps member to embark on obstacle crossing and other physical training activities on camp, including parade, in skirt or gown.
The NYSC director general clarified that organisation did not issue hijab as part of its dress code.
