Social media reacts
"Romans 13;1-2 says OBEY THE GOVERNMENT ,for God is the one who put it there. All of you must obey those who rule over you for there are no authority except the one God has chosen.........if the government said they want trouser why wearing skirt? God will have mercy."
"Lmao as long as it’s not against the rules then leave her be please, shebi they allow hijab in camp, then why are y’all bothered about her? Is it not her belief too? Abeg abeg."
"I don’t see anything wrong in what she’s wearing. Why must they force people to wear shorts when they’re aware that not everyone’s religion permits it. So y’all should stop mocking her and learn to respect other peoples religious beliefs."
"You see these girls that act this way na them do bad bad things the most behind the scenes."
"But normaly this type of people dey wicked ooo,if u come close to them that is when u will knw how dark their heart is.forget outward appearance biko."
Group advocate that skirts be included in NYSC uniform
The group said not allowing female corps members to wear skirts is a breach of their rights as guaranteed by the Nigerian constitution.
Udochi Emmanuel, who is the group's leader, said female corps members wearing trousers evoke immorality in camps.
She claimed that female corps members in the 1970s and 1980s used to wear skirts and urged the government to readopt it.
