The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Gombe State coordinator, Ada Imoni, has warned Corps members against reshaping of their uniforms, either by slim fitting, or cutting their pair of trousers to become shorter.
The Gombe State Coordinator made this call on Monday through a statement titled, “2021 Batch ‘C’ Stream I Orientation Course, ” where she addressed prospective corps members in the state.
Part of the statement reads;
“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 a rubber band at the helm of the khaki trouser or cutting it to ‘three quarters’. 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”.
The statement also disclosed that the orientation will commence on Wednesday 20th October to Tuesday 9th November 2021, reminding all prospective corps members to follow the COVID19 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,”
