who noted that the “students had continuously disregarded the institution’s rules and regulations on dress code.”

The VC also called on all provosts, deans, heads of departments, and faculty officers to ensure students dress decently within their various colleges, schools, and faculties.

The dress code, according to the circular, said students should refrain from “wearing transparent dresses, mini and skimpy dresses, and other clothes revealing sensitive parts of the body.”
