Two members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) currently undergoing a 3-week orientation course Ebonyi State have been sacked from the orientation camp for refusing to wear trousers.
The two corps members are part of the 2019 Batch C Stream 1 recently posted to the state
It was gathered that the duo refused to wear trousers because it was against their faith.
They preferred to wear skirt, which is meant for female folks.
In a statement issued by the Spokesperson of the NYSC in the state, Ngozi Ukwuoma, the duo were spotted by the camp director, Mrs. Isu Josephine, and her team during routine inspection wearing white t-shirt and white skirt.
She gave the names of the two corps members as Okafor Love Obianuju with registration number EB/19C/0523 and Odji Oritsetsolaye (EB/19C/0530).
The statement added “When they were accosted and interrogated, they disclosed that they could not wear the white shorts and the trousers given to them by the NYSC since it was against their faith.
” Efforts were however made by the office of the Camp Director to make them see reason why they must obey the rules and regulations guiding the orientation and NYSC, but all efforts to do that proved futile.
“The corps members were queried and subsequently made to face the camp court where they were found guilty,”.
