The Polytechnic Ibadan has said it would expel students who wear clothes that expose their sensitive body parts as it joins other tertiary institutions in the war against indecent dressing.
Students of The Polytechnic, Ibadan have been warned to shun indecent dressing or risk outright expulsion from the institution.
The polytechnic’s Rector, Professor Olatunde Fawole, gave the warning at the institution’s 2014/2015 matriculation ceremony held at its New Conference Centre last Thursday, Tribune reports.
Fawole said any form of misconduct by the students will not be tolerated, harping on indecent dressing.
He told the newly matriculated students to observe the institution’s standard dress code for both male and female students.
The Rector said dresses that expose sensitive body parts like breasts and thighs are not allowed.
“As the institution frowns at negative mode of dressing by female students, it also disallows the male students from wearing earrings and wearing of hair or any suggestive dresses that could corrupt the system,” Fawole said.
He said the punishment for defaulting will be stern, including expulsion.
“If any of you flouts this dress code, you will be warned as a first-time offender, while subsequent defiance could fetch you a suspension for one or two semesters or even outright expulsion.”
The students were also advised to shun activities and associations that will tarnish their image and that of their families and the institution.
Forumspotz Media gathered that 6,000 candidates were offered admission, out of the total 60,000 the polytechnic received.
A recent trend has seen the management of institutions across the country going tough against cultism and indecent dressing amongst students.
