Rivers Varsity Prohibits Indecent Dressing On Campus

The management of Rivers State University has declared a ban on indecent dressing on indecent dressing on the institution's campus.

The ban was disclosed through an internal memorandum signed by its Registrar and Secretary to the Senate, Dr S. C. Enyindah, dated October 19, 2022, and made available to newsmen.

Enyindah copied the university's Vice-Chancellor, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration), Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), the Provost, the Deans and Heads of Departments, in the memorandum titled “Ban on Indecent Dressing by Students on Campus,” and addressed to the Students' Union Government President and students of the institution. 

“I am directed to inform you that the Senate has banned indecent dressing by students on campus with immediate effect.

"I am further directed to inform you that this ban is sequel to a memo presented by the Committee of Provost and Deans and considered by Senate at its 291 Regular Meeting held on Thursday, September 29, 2022.

“By this ban, it is now prohibited for any student to dress the following way on campus: wearing of ‘spaghetti gown’ by female students. Wearing of short skirt above the knees by female students," the memorandum read.

Listing other banned dressings by the management, it added: “Colouring of hair by both male and female students. Sagging of trousers by both male and female students. Wearing of earrings by male students and nose rings by female students.

“Wearing of tattoos by both male and female students. Wearing of ankle chain by female students. Wearing of long eyelashes by female students.

“Wearing of gown/blouse that exposes the navel or breast by female students. Wearing of tattered jean trousers by both male and female students. Wearing of bathroom slippers or bum shorts to the classroom.

“I am in the circumstance, directed to draw the attention of all students to the above decision and hereby request that you please note and comply accordingly.”

The management' decision comes after a lecturer at the university allegedly used scissors on a female student's dress.
