On mode of dressing, Adebisi called on the students to follow the Village dress code handed to them on arrival at the Village and to encourage their colleagues to follow suit.
According to him, “nudity is not fashion and fashion is not nakedness.” For this, he called on the students to portray humility and nobility through proper dressing.

As time seems to be overtaking the policy, the new Director of the Village Prof. Raufu Adebisi pledged to enforce compliance in full.

The Oath of membership of the SRC was administered to the students by the Registrar, ‘Remi Fatunwase at the instance and presence of the Director.
The students were called upon to study hard to win the various awards available in the Village, stating that it would be appreciated if members of the Exco form part of the winners.

He thanked the Director and Management for opening the opportunity for them to serve the Village in their little way maintaining that the Village remains the MECCA of every serious student of French in Nigeria. The tenure of the SRC ends with the second semester.
