Indecent Dressing Distracts Our Attention - Lecturers backposted on Fri, 22 Jun at 06:53
This wass made known by Head of the Department of Mass Comm, Christiana Best who inform the students for the need to introduce corporate dressing.
She said the idea to introduce corporate dress for the students in the department followed complaints by some lecturers that the students’ indecent dressing distracts their attention during lectures.
Ms. Best said on Wednesday in Jos that the move is aimed at promoting decency among the students.
“We want students of Mass Communication to look corporate at all times because journalists, as information managers, are expected to look corporate. We believe that people in corporate attires are less likely to misbehave. We believe that wearing corporate dress will prevent students from engaging in street fighting, cult activities and other rascal behaviours,” she said.
Ms. Best said the department frowns at female students wearing skimpy dresses, and that she has advised other departments to introduce dress codes.
“Some male students also appear half naked and intimidating,” she said, adding that while students are free to appear in native or English wears, they must be decent.
Ms. Best said that the dress code would make the students imbibe the culture of appearing decent even after their graduation.
Whilst the students have avowed to adopt this new development, the HOD, Ms. Best has commended the students for complying with the code and advised them to imbibe the spirit throughout their lives.
