Nigeria: UNIJOS Goes Tough On Indecent Dressing

Jos — University of Jos, UNIJOS, has gone tough against indecent dressing with a warning that improperly dressed students will be arrested by the institution's security men.

Vice Chancellor of the a university, Prof. Hayward Mafuyai, said at the matriculation of new students, yesterday, said indecently-dressed students were also to be prevented from attending lectures.

He said: "UNIJOS encourages all students to dress to acceptable standards. Undue exposure of the body parts that has the potential to infuriate the sensibilities of others will be severely sanctioned."

He urged the about 4,000 new students to consider themselves lucky to have been offered admission out of the about 40,000 candidates, who chose the university as first or second choice.

Mafuyai said the large number of students applying to the institution anually was a vote of confidence on its academic excellence.
