The Gombe State Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps, Adah Imoni, has passed a warning to prospective corps members against defacing their uniforms, either by slim fitting, or cutting their pair of trousers to make it shorter.

According to the PUNCH, Imoni stated this on Monday in a statement where she highlighted some instructions 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 further explained that the orientation course commences on Wednesday 20th October to Tuesday 9th November 2021, reminding all members to adhere to 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,” it said.
