Ekiti Poly bans tattoos, hair colouring

By Saheed Ibrahim


The Ekiti State Polytechnic, Isan Ekiti, has prohibited tattered jeans, rubber slippers, sagging trousers, body tattoos, and earrings for males, hair colouring and other similar practices on campus.

Also, the institution says it will not condone the activities of any anti-social group, particularly, membership of cult groups.

Any student found violating the dress code and other rules will, therefore, be sanctioned heavily while those who joined anti-social groups would be promptly expelled and handed over to security agencies.

This was disclosed by the Rector of the institution, Prof. Kayode Adesodun, on Monday, during the fourth matriculation exercise for new entrants in the institution.

He said, “Wearing tattered or overly casual jeans, rubber slippers, sagging trousers, body tattoos, earrings for males, hair colouring, and other similar practices are strictly prohibited on campus and will result in serious sanctions.

“The polytechnic encourages all students to dress by accepted standards, while any inappropriate exposure of body parts will be met with strict sanctions.

“The security unit has been authorised to apprehend offenders for necessary action.”

The rector further warned students to stay away shun cultism and other anti-social behaviour.
