The University of Calabar Service Compact with All Nigerian Directorate has imposed a ban on indecent dressing for students and staff at the university with immediate effect.
On Friday in Calabar, the ban was announced by Prof. Patrick Egaga, the director of SERVICOM, in a statement.
According to him, the directorate has expressed serious concern about the rising and widespread occurrence of inappropriate, suggestive, and unofficial clothing, particularly among students and some female personnel of the establishment.
“Specifically, short skirts or gowns, above the knee, open backs, crop tops, braless tops and gowns, spaghetti finger, sleeveless tops, handless gowns, bikinis, see-through, transparent, apparels and revealing contours are no longer tolerated on campus.
“Others are handless gowns, bum short revealing laps, slit skirts, body hugs, V-necks exposing breasts, tubes, strip-less, rag jeans, shorts above the knee, sleeveless shirts, singlets, lingerie, sagged trousers and others.
He stated that all of those would no longer be allowed on campus with effect from Tuesday, May 2, 2023 and consequently, any student or staff member clad in the regalia or paraphernalia mentioned would be denied effective access into any of the university facilities or be appropriately sanctioned.
“A combined security and administrative task force will be constituted to monitor compliance,” he said.
He added that female staff and students in University of Calabar are enjoined to imitate the dressing culture of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Florence Obi, and her deputies.
