NYSC Assistant Director of Legal Services, Mr Christian Oru, declared this in Lagos during a joint session between National Film and Video Censors Board (NFVCB) and creative industry stakeholders on extant laws and modalities to develop professional guilds and associations in the entertainment industry.
The NYSC official posited that illegal use of its apparels in Nollywood movies would no longer be accepted by the management.
In addition, the nysc official stressed the need to always submit an application letter, before using NYSC uniform in movies. The letter must state exactly how the uniform would be used.
