Bill Proposing Skirts For Corp Members Rejected By Senate

The Senate has rejected a bill seeking to propose the option of skirts by female members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). The rejected bill was sponsored by Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha (PDP-Taraba) during plenary on Wednesday.

According to him, the bill is with the intention to amend Sections 13 and 16 of the Principal Act as well as to ensure that the dress code regulations by the NYSC Directorate do not violate the religious practices and beliefs of corps members.
He also stated that the objective of the bill was to increase the penalty for the offenses contained in the Act and to make sure the fines reflect the present value of the naira.
Bwacha, who is Deputy Minority Leader, noted that the NYSC scheme established in 1973, was a commendable thought of the then military Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon.
In his words; “It was part of the effort by the Federal Government to rebuild, reconstruct and reconcile Nigerians following the unfortunate incidents of the civil war which ended in 1970.”
“It is important to point out that while the scheme has lived up to expectation as a reliable platform for nurturing young patriotic Nigerians, fostering unity and promoting a better understanding of our religious and cultural differences, it has, however, become necessary to amend the Principal Act.”
“This is with a view to addressing observed lapses and shortcomings. One of such lapses is that the penalty for offenses contained in the Act is now outdated and in need of urgent review.”
“Secondly, Section 16 of the Principal Act mandates the NYSC Directorate to make regulations or by-laws relating to discipline, exercise regimen, uniforms, welfare of corps etc.”
“Uniforms and drills adopted by the Directorate have become a basis for tension and controversy between the Directorate and corps members and other members of the public.”
“The major bone of contention is that some of the uniforms and drills contravene religious beliefs and practices of corps members and invariably their right to freedom of religion, thought and conscience under the Nigerian Constitution. This bill essentially addresses the above-mentioned lapses in the Principal Act,” he said.
However, in response, Sen. Suleiman Adokwe (PDP-Nasarawa), said: “the amendment being suggested is not even worth the trouble. This is because the powers to prescribe uniform is what the NYSC Act is to the Directorate.”
“I believe if the directorate wants to change the uniform at any time, it is a matter of deciding because it only has the power to prescribe the type of uniform.”
“The type of uniform is even not prescribed; so I don’t know why we should trouble ourselves; all you need to do is to put pressure on the directorate to change the uniform but not necessarily to change the law.”
“All the religious organizations that are feeling oppressed by it should put pressure and lobby the directorate to change its dress code,” Adokwe said.
In the same vein too, Sen. Sam Egwu (PDP-Ebonyi) said; “we should not waste our time on an issue that we have no constitutional right to amend. That is a minute issue that we should not waste our energy on.”
Also, Sen. Jeremiah Husseini (PDP-Plateau) “there is no need for this bill”.
In his remarks, the Deputy President of the Senate, Mr. Ike Ekweremadu, who presided over the proceedings, stated that: “I am not trying to stop the bill; even if you pass the bill, you must send it to all the states in accordance with section 9(2).”
Consequently, the bill was rejected by the lawmakers after a voice vote by Ekweremadu.

Why You Need To Immediately Print JAMB Result

In the past, we have had various remark with regards to JAMB changing the marks of some students after they’d already checked their results. Candidates, who have once checked the results on phones but never printed, later complained of reduction/increase in their scores after rechecking when they were ready to print out.

Most of these cases were confirmed to be true even though JAMB may deny it.

This is why you must check your result as soon as possible. Then, print it and keep your printout for record purpose.

Print Original JAMB Results Online

There’s a big difference between JAMB result (the one discussed above) and the one called ORIGINAL JAMB RESULT.

Original JAMB result will display more information than notification of result. It will further show:

* Passport photo

* Schools of choice and courses chosen

While candidates usually print the JAMB result for about N200 in the local cafes, printing Original result will cost around N1,700. This price change is because original result involves paying to JAMB N1,000 (excluding online/Remita charges). And note that it has to be printed in colour which will increase a café’s service charge.

See how Original JAMB result look and how to print it here

Printing Original JAMB result doesn’t have to be immediately. You will mostly need it when your post UTME registration and school’s admission exercise begins or after being offered admission.
