The authorities of the Taraba State University, has placed a total ban on indecent dressing for students within the institution’s campus.
With the directive, students, according to the school management, are henceforth not to be allowed entrance into the school premises when not properly dressed.
The announcement, which was contained in a circular issued out weekend, warned students who derive joy in perambulating the campus wearing miniskirts, face caps, rolled sleeves, wearing of transparent clothes, mini and skimpy dresses, and other clothes that reveal sensitive parts of their bodies to immediately desist from such act or be thrown out of the school gates.
The circular, which was personally signed by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Sunday Paul Bako, also directed lecturers of the institution to deny students access to lecture halls if they are found to be inappropriate dressed.
Students of the institution, the circular said “are strictly prohibited from wearing tattered and dirty jeans with holes or obscene subliminal messages; shirts without buttons; shirts that are improperly buttoned; rolling of sleeves or flying collar; and wearing of face caps or complete face covering with very dark glasses.”
The prohibition, as noticed in the circular also include; “wearing of tight fitting apparels; wearing clothes that reveal sensitive parts of the body; wearing shirts and tops with obscene, obnoxious or seductive inscription ‘baggy, saggy or ass level’ clothes and any other form of indecent trousers and piercing of body and tattooing.”
While the male students, are “barred from wearing earrings and necklace, including plaiting, weaving or bonding of hair” the female students, on their parts, were cautioned not to wear lousy, unkempt, extremely bogus hair or coloured artificial hair, brightly tinted hair/eyelashes/brown, fixing of long eyelashes, nails and artificial dreadlock.”
