Nigerian film makers warned against using NYSC kits in movies without approval

The management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has instructed filmmakers to always ask for approval from the management before using ”corps members” uniforms in their movies roles.

Mr. Christian Oru, who is the NYSC Assistant Director of Legal Services gave the directives during a meeting between the National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) and creative industry stakeholders in Lagos, warned that illegal use of its uniform in movies would no longer be tolerated.

According to him, filmmakers will be expected to submit an application letter, stating exactly what the uniform would be used for, and that they must acknowledge NYSC in the movie asides from submitting their scripts to enable them to observe how NYSC would be represented in the movie.
