Vice chancellor of Alex Ekwueme Federal University, Ndufu Alike Ikwo in Ebonyi State, Prof Sunday Elom, has banned all forms of indecent dressing among students and staff within the university community.
Elom also ordered the compulsory wearing of faculty and departmental uniforms by all students during school hours.
In a statement signed by the school registrar, Mr. Ifeanyi Igwe, the management expressed displeasure over the ugly trend of students’ behaviour on campus which he said has led to deteriorating discipline and disorderliness in the university.
Prof Elom directed the immediate ban on indecent dressing on campus which includes wearing of transparent dresses, dirty jeans with holes, or obscene subliminal messages, tattered clothes, baggy and saggy clothing and tightfitting apparels.
The school also banned shirts, tops and caps with obscene write-ups that suggest membership of secret cults, shirts, tops and caps with obscene write-ups bearing obnoxious/seductive inscription, piercing of body and tattooing, wearing of necklaces and nose ring by students and artificial dreadlock hair make or coloured artificial hair.
