  • PublishedOctober 28, 2022

The Rivers State University (RSU), Port Harcourt has banned its students from tattooing their bodies and wearing indecent clothes on campus with immediate effect.

This was contained in an internal memo signed by the school’s registrar, Sydney Enyindah, on Friday, October 28, 2022.

Mr. Enyindah listed items considered indecent on campus including the wearing of gowns with tiny shoulder straps (spaghetti gown), short skirts, bum shorts, blouses that expose the navel (bellybutton) or breasts, leg chains and long eyelashes.

Also banned tattoos, nose rings, earrings by male students, tinting hair in different colours, sagging trousers, torn jeans and bathroom slippers.

The registrar said the university’s senate took the decision to ban indecent dressing on campus at its meeting on September 29.

“Students are hereby directed to take note and comply accordingly as enforcement of the directive will begin immediately,” he said.

This comes as students resume back to campus after an eight-month strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
