The management of Godfrey Okoye University, Enugu in Enugu State said it has banned the wearing of shorts by staff and students to work and lectures. Also, fixing finger nails, eye lashes, and other artificial materials on the body will no longer be tolerated in the university.
A statement issued by the Acting Public Relations Officer of the university, Mr Godwin Umeh, quoted the Vice Chancellor of the University, Rev Fr Prof Christian Anieke to have announced this while addressing staff and students of the university and its group of institutions.
Prof Anieke warned that the management would not tolerate staff or students who wear tights and other materials that expose the sensitive parts of their body, stressing that such acts distract other members of the university.
He made it clear that only black and brown hairs would be allowed on campus and gave the staff and students one month to adjust to the new rules or be disciplined.
The Vice Chancellor announced that henceforth, students will be expected to wear their faculty uniforms from Tuesdays to Fridays, stressing that “the directive follows the abuse of the approval for students to wear cultural attires on Fridays.”
He said that the exchange of phonographic materials is taboo in the institutions
Rev.Fr. Prof. Anieke advised the staff of the group of institutions to be proactive and cover their lectures as the management will not have any excuse in case of disruption of the nation’s academic programmes.
The Vice Chancellor warned final year students against plagiarism and emphasised that the university librarian has been directed to carry out plagiarism tests on all research works by the students and staff of the institutions.
Rev. Fr Prof Anieke asked the students to report any staff of the institutions who frustrate them in the completion of their projects. The general prayers and meeting were attended by virtually all the students and staff of the university and its group of institutions.
