NYSC LGI reportedly stops female Corper from thumbprinting. A female Muslim NYSC Corps Member was embarrassed by her Local Government Inspector, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun state LGI, who stopped her from doing her monthly clearance.
She was prevented from doing her monthly PV, because she was putting on a long skirt, instead of the usual trouser that corpers normally put on.
In the video below, the LGI stopped the female corper from thumbprinting and chased her out of her office as soon as she entered, then ordered her to return to where ever she’s coming from, since she’s breaking one of the NYSC rules.
Recall that on March 2018, the Nigerian senate rejected a bill seeking to include skirts in NYSC uniform.
The bill failed to scale second reading at the senate and was rejected following concerns that such amendment requires altering the constitution which requires a longer process.
The then Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who took over from Bukola Saraki, the then Senate President in presiding over the plenary said that the Section 9 (2) of the Constitution says that for you to amend the Constitution, it has to pass through the senate and the state assemblies.
They as the senate, have to follow the same process as if they are amending the Constitution. What they are trying to do here is like to amend the NYSC Act.
