The vice-chancellor of Lagos State University (LASU) has directed lecturers to bar students who dress inappropriately from attending classes.
The directive was contained in a memo addressed to the school’s provost, deans, heads of departments, and faculty officers.
The VC said the development followed ‘continuous disregard’ for the institution’s dress code by the students.
The memo reads, “The vice-chancellor having noted the continuous disregard for the university’s rules and regulations on indecent dressing by students has directed that: provost, deans, heads of departments and faculty officers should ensure decent dressing among students within their various college/schools/faculties; all lecturers are to deny any indecently dressed students from attending lectures.
“In view of the above, and for clarity, the following are modes of dressing which constitute indecent dressing among students of Lagos State University: Wearing transparent dresses, mini and skimpy skirts/dresses, and other clothes revealing sensitive parts of the body.
“Wearing tattered, dirty jeans with holes or obscene subliminal messages. Wearing ‘baggy’, ‘saggy’, ‘yansh’, ‘ass level’, and any other form of indecent trousers. Wearing tight-fitting apparel; wearing clothes that reveal sensitive parts of the body. Wearing shirts and tops with obscene, obnoxious, or seductive inscriptions.
“Wearing shirts without buttons, improperly buttoned, rolling of sleeves or flying collar. Wearing face caps or complete covering of the face (very dark glasses). Piercing of body and tattooing. Wearing earrings and necklaces male students. Wearing of a nose ring, very big dropping earrings, and necklaces by students.
