Female Staff In NPA Ordered To Stop Wearing Tight Clothes & Miniskirts

The management of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has banned its staff from wearing miniskirts and tight jeans trousers, revealing their body shapes. Inappropriate dressings such tight jeans trousers and mini-skirts/dresses by its staff, would no longer be condoned and will henceforth attract 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 on 25th August, 2008 and on 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.”
