Nigerian Ports Authority Bans Staff From Wearing Jeans Trousers, Miniskirts

The management of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has banned its staff from wearing miniskirts and jeans trousers. According to the management, inappropriate dressings such tight jeans trousers and mini-skirts/dresses by its staff, would no longer be condoned and will henceforth attract appropriate sanctions.

NPA’s general manager, Human Resources was quoted to have said “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, (to mention but a few) that are unnecessary distractions would no longer be condoned and will henceforth attract appropriate sanctions.”

The management thereafter urged sectional heads to monitor employees’ dressings with emphasis on decent and formal English wears.

The statement added: “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.”

The new dressing order comes just a month after Hadiza Bala Usman, newly appointed managing director of NPA assumed duties at the headquarters in Lagos. On assumption at the office, Usman told her colleagues to join her to make the ports authority a model agency.

“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.

  2. Of all the issues plaguing Nigeria, this foolish woman feels dress code will solve it. How is the Nigerian port like? I'm not even talking about the roads. These foolish muslems just think the whole world is built around them and their stupid religion. Does stopping to wear mini skirt prevent their men from raping and defiling innocent children in the name of marriage? They should just take their fundamentalist policies to hell.

  4. This is the incompetence El-Rufai threw upon Nigeria.
    Expect nothing superlative from this girl.
    She rode on El-Rufai's back and "blokos" to become NPA DG.
    APC is working
