The Senate of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State has warned the students of the school against indecent dressing, threatening to rusticate any student involved in any form of indecent dressing on the campus.
This was contained in a circular released at the end of the Senate meeting and signed by the registrar of the school, Olugbenga Arajulu.
In the circular released earlier this month, the school authorities listed acts of indecent dressing to include wearing of skimpy skirts and blouses, leaving the cleavages open by female students, and wearing of braids or dreadlocks, earrings, nose rings, tattered jeans and sagging by some male students.
The Institution’s Senate who frowned over the rate of indecent dressing in the school, said that failure to adhere to this would attract rustication from the school for a semester as punishment.
The circular, titled Penalty for Indecent dressing in AAUA and distributed to all heads of departments, Dean of Students Affairs, SUG President, and other relevant departments read:
“This is to inform you that the Senate at its 171st Regular Meeting of Wednesday, 25th August 2021, observed and frowned at the high rate of incident dressing among the students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State.
“For clarity of purpose, indecent dressing include, but not limited to the following: wearing of skimpy skirts and blouses; leaving 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.
“Any student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, who violates the above Senate decision on indecent dressing is deemed to have committed to misconduct and he/she shall be sanctioned accordingly. Please be guided.”

Universities in Nigeria and worrying about the wrong things 5&6
Tf! Is it university abi primary school?
Misplaced priority!!! Then still sacrifice all this to come out with degree without a job, come out with certificate that doesn’t have value
Just dress the way they want or avoid going there.
Honestly Nigeria remains backward with its mentality. this is a university and not primary school. This una too know attitude has not benefited anyone. Its 2021 for God sake. I am happy I dont live in that country.
Olodos, even in covenant university, it is just letter of warning on first attempt it is now one backward university no one has heard of that will now suspend for one semester ?, what even qualifies as indecent dressing is another question.
Good one my alma mater????
Your almamata ? And you are proud ? ??? a university dictating how it’s students ( Adults) should dress ? ? is that their purpose ? Oh my God .. Nigerians .. we are so mentally and emotionally damaged that stupid things are acceptable as ok to us.
Good one but I hope it will not be a subject of personal interpretation and instrument of oppression.
