Gombe NYSC Gives Reasons For Decamping Corps Member In Skirt

A  National Youths Service Corps member, spotted in the NYSC kit with a skirt has been reportedly asked to vacate the Amada Temporary Orientation Camp in Akko Local Government Area of Gombe State for violating the dressing code for the mandatory three-week orientation course.

This was reportedly disclosed in a press statement from the Head of Public Relations Unit in Gombe NYSC, Margaret Dakama.

According to her, “Our attention has been drawn to pictures and videos of a corps member wearing a skirt, trending on social media, said to be decamped from NYSC Orientation Camp Amada, Gombe State.”

She noted, “Every Corps member is issued kit items which include; shorts, belt, khaki jacket, khaki trouser, jungle boots, tennis shoes, crested vest and white T-shirt, and is expected to wear such kit items throughout the duration of the service year.”

She addedd, “It is, therefore, an offence to deface the Uniform to any form other than the one issued by Management.”

She disclosed, “The National Youth Service Corps Bye-laws reprinted in the year 2000 Schedule 2, section 1 sub-section (I) says ‘Failure to wear the uniform provided for any particular activity penalty; The Corps member should be informed to go and wear the uniform, failing which he will be decamped’.”

She made it known, “We wish to place on record that the said corps member blatantly refused to wear the khaki trouser and chose to wear a khaki skirt instead (A case of defacing and refusal to wear our uniform).”

Dakama, also remarked, “She was made to face the camp court, found guilty and subsequently decamped in accordance to the provisions of the NYSC Bye-laws.

“The NYSC Secretariat Gombe has compiled and forwarded a report on the Corps member and awaits further directives from our National Directorate Headquarters.”
