Youth Corp member expelled from NYSC camp for refusing to wear khaki trousers

Youth Corp member expelled from NYSC camp for refusing to wear khaki trousers

A graduate of the Lagos State University, LASU, Ojo, Lagos State, Miss
Tolulope who was posted to Ogun State for her national assignment has been
sent packing from the orientation camp of the National Youth Service Corps,
NYSC in Sagamu, Ogun State over her refusal to wear trousers at the
orientation camp.
Tolulope, who reported to the camp in Shagamu on Tuesday, March 5, in her
khaki skirts, was said to have been shown the way out of the camp last Friday,
March 8 at about 11:00pm by the Camp Co-ordinator, Franca Ifon.

Tolulope said that wearing of trousers negate her Christian belief and values
which she could not compromise.

She said, “I had a dream when I was 10 years. God appeared to me through a
scripture that as a child of God, I must abstain from men’s wears and since
then I have taken cognizance of it. And my parents know this as well.”
“Before I had the dream, I never wore trousers and even after the dream, up till
now. I have not wore trousers. I explained everything to the leadership of the
NYSC but they said the penalty for not wearing the khaki trousers is by being
“I faced a panel and I was directed to submit all the kits that were given to me
at the camp, which I did. I was also ordered to go to the accounts unit and
refund the N2, 500 transportation and bicycle allowances I was paid on the
camp and I did so. All these happened on the same Friday that I was ordered
to leave the camp.

“I want to serve my father land and if NYSC will allow me to wear skirt on the
camp, I am ready to return to the orientation camp. My khaki and white skirts
were made in such a way that they did not give me any problem. I was in
Platoon Four and I participated actively in all the exercises from Tuesday to
the Friday that I was thrown out of the camp,” Tolulope said.

The Head/Press and Public Relations Unit of NYSC in Ogun State, Mrs.
Tarkighir Diana, confirmed Tolulope’s exit.

She explained that Tolulope Ekundayo signed an undertaking during her
registration on the camp, which she later disobeyed.
Ekundayo’s church leaders, led by Apostle Paul Taiwo Adenuga of the Faith
Apostolic Church, Egbeda, Lagos State have opted to pursue the matter legally.
