Rivers State University (RSU) has banned indecent dressing by students on campus with immediate effect.
This is according to an internal memorandum dated 19 October and signed by the school’s registrar, Dr. Sydney Enyindah.
According to the memo, female students were forthwith prohibited from wearing gowns with tiny shoulder straps (spaghetti gowns), short skirts, ankle chains, bum shorts, gowns or blouses that expose the navel (bellybutton) or breasts, nose rings, and long eye lashes.
While male students were banned from wearing earrings, both female and male students were banned from tinting (colouring) their hair, sagging their trousers, getting tattoos, wearing crazy (tattered) jeans, and wearing bathroom slippers to the classroom.
The registrar, who is also the secretary to the university’s senate, said the school authorities took the decision to ban the indecent dressing on campus at the 291st regular meeting of the senate held on 29 September 2022.
He urged students “to take note and comply accordingly as enforcement of the directive will begin immediately.”
