Is This Why Abuja Ladies Prefer Trousers To Skirts



(NAN) Some ladies in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) said on Friday said that they were more comfortable in trousers than in skirts.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent who spoke to some ladies in the FCT said that trousers were more comfortable to wear.

Mrs Jane Akachi, the Manager of Psalm Boutiques located at Wuse 2 said that she looked smarter in trousers than in skirts or gowns.

“I recall that I was at Banex Plaza during the last explosion but as soon as the explosive went off I was able to run very fast,’’ she said.

“My husband also prefers I wear trousers to skirts and he always admires me more whenever I am putting them on, he said it brings out my curves,’’ she said.

Akachi said that nothing could make her stop wearing trousers even when she grew old.

Miss Diana Ojuar, a student of University of Abuja said that she wore trousers for security reasons and for attraction.

“I like putting on trousers because at times I go for night classes and come back late and at that time, I will run till I get to my room.

“I also wear it to look good and attractive to my admirers,’’ Ojuar said.

She said that her fat legs discouraged her from putting on skirts.

“I have fat legs and skirts make me look funny but trousers cover that for me,’’ she said.

Nkechi Anthony, a civil servant said that she wore trousers most times to protect her skin.

“When I look at my legs, I feel so proud because they look really fresh; it is the help of trousers.

“I do not like to expose my legs to harsh weather conditions, so the best thing for me is to use trousers to cover them.

“Again, when I am sitting down, I don’t have to watch myself or care if my legs are closed or not,’’ Anthony said. (NAN)
