Kwara State government has warned teachers in the state against indecent dressing.
The warning was issued on Friday April 2, 2021, by the Chairman of the state Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM) Mallam Taueed Bello.
He gave this while addressing a group of teachers in Ilorin, the state capital.
Bello warned that teachers, who are role models to the students, should desist from dressing capable of demoralising the public.
Mallam Bello therefore advised them to comply with the dress code of the civil service.
He said, “Teachers are character moulders, and they are expected to always show a good example to the students.”
He added, “You have to be role models to your students and shun immodest dressing.
“Teachers as character moulders should always show a good example to their students. You should form the habit of dressing decently in the course of discharging your constitutional duties.”
He stressed the need for teachers to be steadfast and committed to their duties and shun indolence in order to restore the lost glory of education in the state.
The TESCOM boss also sought the support and cooperation of the teachers in order to ensure the success of the present administration in the education sector.
