The Gombe State Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps, Ada Imoni, has warned prospective corps members against defacing their uniforms, either by slim fitting, or cutting their pair of trousers to become shorter.
Imoni made this call on Monday in a statement titled, ‘2021 Batch ‘C’ Stream I Orientation Course’, where she gave some directives to the intending corps members in the state.
“Management of the scheme has observed the growing trend of defacement of the NYSC uniform and improper dressing by Corps members. In view of that, Prospective Corps Members are advised not to deface the uniform either by slim fitting, use of rubber band at the helm of the khaki trouser or cutting it to ‘three quarter’. They must be ready to be properly dressed for all occasions and function as leaders of tomorrow and role models to millions of youth in the country,” she said.
The statement also revealed that the orientation course begins on Wednesday 20th October to Tuesday 9th November 2021, reminding all members to follow the COVID-19 protocols.
“You are to also come prepared to observe the COVID-19 safety measures of regular use of the face mask, washing of hands under running water, and use of alcohol-based sanitizers. With strict adherence to the COVID-19 safety measures, we can mitigate the risk of transmission of the virus on camp,” the statement revealed.
