As a part of efforts to curb indecent dressing by students of the Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka, the management of the university has banned every form of dressing considered irresponsible by students of the institution.
The university, in a memo by its Registrar, Mr. Dan Urhibo, specifically banned “the wearing of twisted hairstyle by male students, and wearing of ear rings by male students.
“Others are sagging of trousers and showing of underwear by male students, wearing of transparent dress by female students, and any other forms of dressing by students considered unsightly/irresponsible.
“This circular, therefore, is to bring to the attention of staff and students the decision of management for implementation. Defauting students will not be allowed entry into any of the university’s campuses, lecture rooms and examination venues”.
it called on Deans of Faculties, Heads of Departments, and security operatives within the university to ensure strict compliance, assuring that any student found wanting in this regard would be dealt with accordingly.
A top security source in the university, who spoke on the ground of anonymity, told our reporter that they have implemented the directive of the management as they have been restricting students found wanting from entering the university.
He said, inter-alia: “we have ensured strict compliance to this directive since February 7, 2018. Any student that is found to be poorly dressed is sent back home, whether male or female. It is unfortunate that most of the students now dress indecently.
“We will not compromise despite the fact that they have started examination. Few days ago, some students in a salon car were denied entry into the University for indecent dressing. We asked them to go back and dress properly even though they pleaded that they were already late for examination”.
