Nigerians always have a funny way of reacting to social buzz.
The Lagos State Government recently banned all types of dressing that exposes breasts and other sensitive parts of the female body.
The decision was taken because of the increasing state of indecent dressing by female state government public servants. Drastic measures will be taken against offenders.
The new dress code for female employees includes skirts that are above the knee, pants which are not figure hugging and gowns with moderate slits and long sleeves.
And of course, many who didn’t take time to understand the ban, thought it was for all females in Nigeria. Here are some tweets responding to the ban, with some accusing Governor Babatunde Fashola
Fashola bans mini skirt again…this guy is right but he’s kind of going too far
