The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Oyo State has refuted a video circulating on social media depicting a female corps member wearing a long white skirt instead of the usual white shorts at the Iseyin orientation camp.
A female corps member wearing white and khaki skirts is shown in photos and videos obtained by LIB at one of the NYSC orientation camps.
Mrs Olatoye Christy, Assistant Director, Press and Public Relations Unit, NYSC, Oyo State, claimed in a statement that no such corps member was present at the orientation camp, and that all corps members are following the scheme’s guidelines.
“The NYSC Oyo State administration has been brought to a video that has gone viral on social media depicting an anonymous corps member supposedly observed in NYSC Oyo State camp wearing a long white skirt instead of the traditional white short,” she said.
“It’s critical to clarify that the scene was never captured in the Oyo State camp.
In camp, corps members are required to wear a white T-shirt and white shorts as their uniform, and no corps member has ever refused to follow the NYSC dress code, whether for religious reasons or for any other reason.
