The Director-general of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Shuaibu Ibrahim, says the scheme’s dress code has not changed from a pair of khaki trousers and shirt.

The NYSC DG was reacting to a recent controversy on the dress code for corps members which led to two female members of the corps being de-kitted and sent home.

In a statement issued on Monday by Adenike Adeyemi, NYSC’s director of press and public relations, Ibrahim advised corps members to always the obey dress code.

“The DG notes with great concern the negative perception of the scheme’s dress code, arising mostly from some corps members’ disobedience to the dictates of the code,” he said.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the scheme has maintained one dress code since May 22, 1973 when it was established, devoid of ethnic, religious or gender bias.

“The code remains a pair of khaki trousers and shirt; crested vest; white vest; a pair of white shorts; a pair of zebra-striped socks; a pair of jungle boots; a pair of canvas; belt and fez cap.

“This depends on camp activity at any point in time.”

“Any other dress code contrary to the officially-sanctioned one will not promote the course of decency,” he stated.

He said wearing clothes like skirts, gowns to embark on obstacle crossing, parade and other physical training activities on camp, will most likely not work.

“Those will expose her indecently, thus, leaving little or nothing to the imagination.

“The management observed with dismay the defacing of the NYSC uniform by some corps members by reshaping their khaki trousers, making them skin-tight, which unduly expose their curvatures, particularly the female corps members.

“Some others, in the name of religion, turn the pair of trousers issued to them into skirts.

“The scheme, therefore, considers the unwholesome act as an affront to decency on one hand and constituted authority on the other.

“It was for that reason that the scheme came up with the policy of having prospective corps members sign undertaking forms to the effect that they will not deface the NYSC uniform, but abide by the dress code for corps members.”

On the use of hijab as part of its dress code, he said;

“Rather, the scheme permits the use of white hijab, which must not be more than shoulder length and must be tucked into the uniform,” he said.

“The policy of allowing hijab, which does not deface the NYSC uniform, is not new, as it has been there.

“The NYSC wishes to assure Nigerians and place on record that it will continue to be single-minded in pursuit of its core mandate of achieving a united, integrated, egalitarian and hate-free nation.

“It shall never do anything untoward to undermine or abridge gratuitously the rights of individuals or institutions based on parochial considerations.”
