Controversy trails the decision of the management of Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, to ban its members of staff from wearing trousers and miniskirts/dresses just barely two month Bring Back Our Girls, BBOG founder, Ms. Hadiza Bala Usman was newly appointed as the Managing Director.

On assumption at the office, Usman told her colleagues to join her to make the ports authority a model agency as any form of ‘indecent’ dressing would no longer be condoned and will henceforth attract appropriate sanctions, DailyPost reports.

The new development was made public by the NPA’s general manager, Human Resources in a circular that reads:

”It has been observed that despite the issuance of a couple of circulars vide HQ/GMHR/CON/G.3/128 of 25th August, 2008 and HQ/CR/AD/G.1/3039 of 19th December, 2014 on corporate Dress Code, some employees still indulge in improper dressing to the office.

”For the avoidance of doubt, it is hereby reiterated that inappropriate dressings such tight jeans trousers, cut-off trousers, mini-skirts/dresses, tummy and navel shirt transparent/exposing outfits, spaghetti strapped dresses, mismatched clothes, rubber slippers, tattered shoes and rough hairstyles, that are unnecessary distractions would no longer be condoned and will henceforth attract appropriate sanctions.”

In addition, the management thereafter urged sectional heads to monitor employees’ dressings with emphasis on decent and formal English wears.

The statement reads further:

”In view of the foregoing and to further maintain a positive corporate image of a reputable organisation, all divisional, departmental and sectional heads, especially heads of personnel are once again enjoined to ensure monitoring of compliance of employees dressings with emphasis on decent, moderate and smart national and formal English wears.

”We will listen to our customers, importers, exporters and other agencies working in the Ports to improve on our service delivery to the nation, anything less than world-class services is simply not acceptable; attaining such heights is a mission to which I am certain we can all subscribe,” she said.
