Godfrey Okoye University, Enugu has banned obscene clothing and introduced a new dress code to make it easier for students and staff to identify.
Vice Chancellor of the University, Pastor Fr. Christian Anieke made the announcement on Tuesday to staff and students at the facility returning from their Christmas and New Year holidays.
From now on, all students are to wear faculty uniforms with appropriate ties and shoes, according to Anneke.
“No student is expected to wear flippers, heavy-duty jeans, colored hair, long fingers, face caps or artificial eyelashes,” he instructed.
Anieke expressed regret that most students and staff were wearing T-shirts with inscriptions that were not permitted, contrary to the school’s dress code.
He clarified that male students must have their hair well combed or shaved.
The Vice Chancellor revealed that the university management has introduced a qualitative evaluation of all faculty and non-faculty personnel at the university.

“Leading staff of educational institutions will now visit lecture rooms to evaluate lectures by academic staff, and non-educational staff will submit roll calls at the beginning and end of daily activities.
“Students who do not attend lectures cannot take exams,” warned Anieke.
Aneke also announced that Godfrey Okoye University Enugu’s 14th Commencement Ceremony will take place on January 27th.
The priest clarified that female students should not wear shoes higher than four centimeters in height, and emphasized that students must dress neatly.
For men, they were supposed to march in suits with college ties, he said.
The Vice Chancellor further announced that the first semester exams for all students will begin immediately after enrollment.
Anieke explained that the early implementation of the exam was in response to student parents’ requests to keep their children at home during the general election.
He advised young people to focus on what they can do to help solve the country’s problems.
The deputy prime minister also urged Nigerians to protect their voter cards and vote wisely during elections.
