NPA ban miniskirts

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Authorities of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) have banned the wearing of jeans trousers and miniskirts by members of staff.

The NPA disclosed violation of this rule would be met with heavy sanctions.

Apart from jeans trousers and miniskirts, the NPA also banned the wearing of tummy and navel shirt transparent/exposing outfits, spaghetti strapped dresses, mismatched clothes, rubber slippers, tattered shoes and rough hairstyles.

The NPA said the appropriate dress code for its employees should be any decent, moderate and smart national and formal English wears.

According to NPA’s General Manager, Human Resources, Y.G Bukar, “It [was] 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.”

“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 NPA said.
