The management of Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) has frowned at what it termed “inappropriate dressings” by some of its staff, stating that it would no longer tolerate the wearing of clothes such as tight jeans trousers, cut-off trousers, mini-skirts and spaghetti strapped dresses, among others to work.

In an internal memorandum sent to the workers titled “DRESS CODE”, with reference number HQ/CR/AD/G.1/589, dated 27th July, 2015 and sighted by SHIPS & PORTS DAILY; NPA’s General Manager, Human Resources, Y.G. Bukar, 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.

“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.”

When a SHIPS & PORTS DAILY correspondent visited Rivers and Onne Ports, both in Rivers State and the NPA Headquarters in Marina, Lagos last week, however, it does not appear that the management directive has been substantially complied with as some workers were seen in casual and tight fitting dresses.
