NYSC Warns Public Against Unauthorised Use Of Uniform

The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC has warned the public against unathourised and illegal use of the corps uniform.

Eddy Megwa who is the Director, Press and Public Relations of the corps, share this in a statement issued out on Monday in Abuja, Federal Capital Territory.

Megwa who quoted the section of the constitution forbidding it illegal used stated that there were dangers in the unauthorised use of the NYSC uniform, the logo, lyrics, literature, and other intellectual materials associated with the scheme, as doing so could attract sanctions.

According to him, “The scheme is greatly disturbed by the circulation of various content on social media for entertainment and political purposes where the NYSC uniform is used without consent.

“The NYSC remains apolitical and neutral in the ongoing political and electioneering process and these unregulated materials continue to portray the corps in bad light.”

He quoted Section 14 of the NYSC Act which states, “Any person who, not being a person serving in the service corps or
duly authorised so to do, wears the uniform or any part of the uniform of the service corps is guilty of an offence and liable on conviction to a fine of N1,000.00 or to imprisonment for a term of six months or to both.”
