Students laud management’s directive on dress code
Students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) have applauded the authority of the school for monitoring students dress pattern on campus through the security department of the school.
The management of the institution has been working tirelessly with the security unit curb indecent dressing, which was almost becoming a standard among students on campus.
Evaluating the performance of the security team in their new role, Akin Steven, a 400-level student of Microbiology department, said the management has made the right decision and the security unit has been fair in carrying out its duties.
“Most students due to peer pressure exhibit indecent behaviours to probably feel big or belong to the high class on campus. So the management has actually done the right thing,” he said.
A student of Mass Communication, Daramola Aderayo, said: “It is a good decision on the part of the management as this inappropriate appearance had made a lot of students to fall victim of sexual abuse. It also gives some students bad name.”
A 400-level student of Guidance and Counselling, Banjoko Blessing, also affirmed that the school has done a good job implementing the policy. “But the security unit has not actually been doing well as they have been partial to some students. He urged the security officers to be more enforcing in carrying out their responsibilities.”
Aderemi Adeola from linguistic department, who also praised the management’s decision to nip the act in the bud, said it has reduced the rate at which some students especially ladies dress indecently to class.
She, however, alleged that some security officials have been using that opportunity to harass students, while some are being partial at times. She gave an instance of a colleague who was harassed despite being appropriately dressed from her perspective.
