You must wear pants, brassieres on campus or face disciplinary action — Ilaro poly students Warned


The Students’ Representative Council of the Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro, Ogun State, has cautioned students at the school that failure to wear panties and brassieres on campus will come with consequences.

The arm of the Students Union Government, via the council’s representative, Sulaiman Adedamola disclosed this in a circular while cautioning students against indecent dressing on campus.

According to Adedamola, it has become a requirement for students to adhere to the warning, respect the rules of the school and fellow students.

“It is absolutely essential that you wear pants and a bra while on campus. This is not a suggestion; it is a requirement.

“If you do not comply, you will face the consequences and may face disciplinary action.

“Please respect your fellow students and the rules of the school by wearing appropriate clothing at all times,” the statement read.

NAIJALOADED understands that the polytechnic joined other Nigerian higher institutions such as Federal Polytechnic, Ado Ekiti; Bayero University Kano (BUK); University of Ilorin; University of Lagos; Lagos State University amongst others that had released dress codes for male and female students.
