Enugu university raises the bar for Harvard and others as it orders students to wear uniforms
Student of Godfrey Okoye University, Enugu, has been ordered to, henceforth, wear their faculty uniforms with appropriate ties and shoes.
The vice-chancellor of the university, Christian Anieke, who gave the order on Tuesday, January 10, said the move became paramount in order to curb indecent dressing among students.
Annie said this while addressing staff and students of the institution as they returned from Christmas and New Year breaks, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
“No student is expected to wear slippers, rugged jeans, coloured hair, long fingers, fez caps or artificial eyelashes,” he directed.
Mr Anieke regretted that most students and staff wear t-shirts with unauthorised inscriptions, contrary to the school’s dress code and ordered male students to comb their hair properly or shave it.
