The Directorate of SERVICOM at the University of Calabar, Cross River State, has banned indecent dressing among students and staff of the university.
It said anyone dressed in short skirts, braless tops, sleeveless shirts and other revealing dresses would no longer be allowed entry into the school premises. It said such persons could also be sanctioned.
The SERVICOM director, Prof Patrick Egaga, in a statement in Calabar on Friday, said the directorate had noticed with concern the increase in indecent, provocative and unofficial dressing, mostly by students and some female staff of the institution.
The statement said, “Specifically, short skirts or gowns above the knee, open backs, crap tops, braless tops and gowns, spaghetti finger, sleeveless tops and gowns, bikinis, see-through, transparent, apparels and revealing contours are no longer tolerated on campus.
“Others are handless gowns, bum shorts 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.
“All of these will no longer be tolerated on campus with effect from Tuesday, May 2, 2023. Consequently, any student or staff clad in regalia or paraphernalia mentioned will 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.”
