A footage causing an uproar online shows a female corps member being disciplined at her Place of Primary Assignment (PPA), where she was instructed to kneel. The clip captures the young woman, donning her khaki uniform, on her knees in an office setting while being reprimanded.
It seems that the leader or owner of a yet-to-be-revealed PPA directed the corps member to kneel, ostensibly due to disobedience.
This clip rapidly amassed extensive internet attention, inciting a myriad of responses from online viewers.
Critics were divided with some condemning the female corps member for obeying the kneel directive, whereas others expressed disapproval of the owner’s actions.
The contentious video can be viewed below:
Below are some reactions from the netizens:
@official_adags made a point stating, “Such humiliation would only be tolerated by a Yoruba corps member due to their inherent respectfulness.”
@Uncle_Onos criticized the incident, opining, “This act is highly unacceptable. It’s disturbing how some mothers justify behavior like this by saying “we are mothers.” How could you punish an adult like that?”
@iam_sezu amusingly remarked, “Sometimes you need to express a hint of madness to earn respect.”
@iamuyiri voiced out his worry: “This is alarming. I hope the PPA is endorsed by NYSC because oftentimes corps members do majority of the work in such establishments.”
@Beausteven_blog made a strong statement: “For someone like me, with unapologetic pride, this could never be my situation.”
@JoelUdanyi questioned the example set for students, stating: “This is disgraceful! If this is a school, how will the students ever respect her?”
