CAN Speaks On NYSC Expelling Corpers For Refusing To Wear Trousers

The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has condemned in strong terms the decision of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) for expelling two Corps members who refused to put on trousers or shorts for religious reasons.

Two female corps members – Okafor Love Obianuju, with call-up number EB/19C/0523; and Odji Oritsetsolaye, with call-up number EB/19C/0530 – were expelled from the 2019 Batch C Stream 1 in Ebonyi camp over the weekend for refusing to put on trousers.

The Special Assistant on Media and Communications to the CAN President, Rev. Adebayo Oladeji, said the two ladies should not be victimised for holding on to their faith.

The statement noted that the Nigerian Law School denied Firdausa Al Jannah Amasa from being called to Bar in 2017 because she refused to remove her hijab, but the institution had since retraced its steps.
