The management of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko (AAUA) has announced that any student of the institution who dresses indecently will be rusticated for one semester.
Olugbenga Arajulu, the varsity’s registrar, broke the news in a circular dated September 7, with reference number AD/ REG//CIR/58/VOL. VI/309.
According to the registrar, the decision was taken by the institution’s senate during its 171st meeting held on August 25.
Arajulu said the directive, which took effect from August 25, became imperative to address the high rate of indecent dressing among students of the institution.
The registrar also said any student who violates the senate decision would be “sanctioned accordingly.”
“This is to inform you that the Senate had at its 171st Regular Meeting of Wednesday, 25th August 2021, observed and frowned at the high rate of indecent dressing among the students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo state,” it read.
“For clarity of purposes, indecent dressing includes, but not limited, to the following: wearing of skimpy skirts and blouses; leaving the cleavages open by female students; and wearing of braids or dreadlocks, earrings, nose rings, tattered jeans, sagging, etc, by some male students.
“After thorough deliberation on the issue, the Senate, in its wisdom, decided that the penalty for indecent dressing shall henceforth be rustication for one semester, effective from 25th August, 2021.
