The Rector, the Federal Polytechnic Offa, Kwara State , Dr. Lateef Olatunji has warned students of the institution to shun immoral dressing as the school will not tolerate indecent dressing of any kind.
The rector warned the students while addressing the newly admitted students during the orientation program held on 22nd, January 2020 in 1000 capacity hall at the school permanent site.
While welcoming the new intakes, Dr Olatunji enjoined them to stay clear of any indecent act that can terminate there studentship.
He said “I urge you all to avoid all acts of indecencies and violence as the Management would deal decisively with any student found to be involved in anti-social behaviour. In addition, the Polytechnic Academic Board will not hesitate to withdraw any student who performs below expected standards in his or her academic work. You have been warned that offences like examination malpractices, cultism, sexual harassment, cyber-crime, indecent dressing and the likes are gross misconduct which attracts serious sanction”.
“This Polytechnic attaches great importance to decent and modest dressing. Your dressing is an expression of who you are. Good dressing will add values to your personality, self-confidence and self-worth. The saying, “the way you dress is the way you will be addressed” is very instructive. The following are some of the things prohibited at the Polytechnic: wearing of dirty, tattered and crazy jeans, wearing of slippers, pulling down of trouser to the hips (sagging), tattooing of the body, piercing of nose or any part of the body except the ears (for female only), tinting of hair and attachments, wearing of revealing and over clinging clothes such as body hugs etc.
You are advised to adhere strictly with the recommended dress and personal code as violation will attract severe disciplinary action” The Rector added
The Divisional Police Officer of Offa Local Government, speaking at the program advised the students to make good choice for themselves and never engage in anything that would get them to the police station.
He said: ” police station is like a hospital, once you get there, the story is always unpalatable and if you have ever been detained in a police station it would be on a record and somehow in the future someone would dig it. So make choices, finish here and go outside to make positive impact in order to be good alumni of this institution
Also present at the orientation, the Public Relations and Protocol Officer, Mr Olayinka Iroye gave a strict warning to the students not to engage in cultism and other social vices. He therefore lays emphasis on indecent dressing adding that, the polytechnic will never condone immorality and marlians’ dress style. He said: “Cultism is an unholy act, please shun it, avoid it the way you will avoid a dangerous snake. This anti-social behaviour is a menace to the society.
He therefore urged students to join only clubs, associations or societies that are recognized by the Directorate of Students’ Affairs. If you are caught associating yourself with any illegal group, you will not only be expelled, you will be handed over to the law enforcement agents for prosecution”.
