Precious Jones, a young official of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) took to her Facebook page to write on common misconceptions about women in uniform.
“I am one lady that can’t be intimidated for any reason
I wear a uniform doesn’t mean am more a man and less a female
When I hear comments like “obiri ni nu uniform buru” ladies in uniform are wicked/stubborn “
I laff till tears start coming outta my eyes
I accept the fact we could be stubborn but deep down we got a heart
We need that stubbornness to make some of our men/women obey laws and comply to certain standards required of them
I can remember times men will talk me down on duty and demand to be spoken to by a man
Customer is always right Na
But my real men don’t intimidate women instead they support, respect and build strong women
Am a proud uniform lady
