The Serve With Skirt Movement, an advocacy group observed a protest against the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) management yesterday 16th January demanding the inclusion of skirts in NYSC uniform.
Some male folks participated in the protest which also had young ladies dressed in khaki skirts with placards on which it’s written “there is a difference between the world and the daughters of God” and “our sisters cannot dress like men”
The leader of the group, Udochi Emmanuel, while speaking to newsmen said that being harassed for wearing the skirts in NYSC orientation camps breached their fundamental human rights under Section 38(1) of the constitution of Nigeria.
She stated that wearing trousers has led to an increased level of immorality at the orientation camps. Udochi spoke further;
“We had our mothers wearing skirts and we want to go back to that.
“We have asked for exemption (sic) severally. NYSC has not given that as an option, they have made it a compulsory one-year service for everyone below the age of 30 and they are mandated to wear those clothes.
"We have already started negotiations (with the government) and we hope that from this dialogue we will get a favourable response.”
However, she said they will seek redress in court if they don’t get justice.
