CAN Reacts To The Expelling Of Corpers By NYSC For Refusing To Wear Trousers

It’s no more news that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) expelled two Corps members who refused to put on trousers or shorts for religious reasons.

The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, strongly condemned the NYSC body for taking such a decision.

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.

The statement explained that the NYSC also ought to be more tolerant.

CAN said, “The fundamental rights of the people as regards religion must be respected.


“And that is why, a few months ago, when some Muslim women were protesting over the wearing of hijab at the Law School, we refused to speak against it because it is their right and thank God, they won it.


“We are appealing to the leadership of the NYSC to revisit the matter.


“In this country, religious right is an inalienable right that must be respected. They must allow the people to practise their religion.


“If our government agencies have no regard for the way people worship God, then it means they are satanic. Any system that does not respect religion is satanic.”

It advised the affected corps members to go to court, recalling the way the Muslims sued the Nigerian Law School over the hijab controversy.

CAN said, “We advise the victims of that injustice to go to court and challenge their expulsion by the NYSC.”
