Mrs. Ann Ibe, the Ebonyi state Coordinator of the scheme, while speaking with pressmen in Abakaliki made it known that NYSC relied on various sections of its bye-laws to carry out its decisions.

She added by saying that the scheme’s action to de-kit the two corps members was based on due process.

Recall that two corps members were sacked by the NYSC for allegedly refusing to wear its trousers and shorts during the three-week orientation course which is currently in progress nationwide.

Findings by campusbiz revealed that they were said to have violated the dress code of the scheme by wearing a white skirt instead of the trousers stipulated and issued by NYSC.

It was made known that efforts made to persuade them to change their minds to wear the approved kits proved abortive which led to a development that forced the corps to de-kit and decamp them.

The state coordinator also made it known that the corps members were decamped in line with the recommendations of the NYSC Camp Court, saying that the court was the Corps Disciplinary Committee which handled cases that arose in the camp.
