Adekunle Ajasin University

The management of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), in Ondo State has decried the increasing rate of indecent dressing among the students of the institution, saying it has adopted rustication as punishment for any student found indecently dressed in the school.

The institution disclosed this in a circular to the students, signed by the school registrar, Olugbenga Arajulu, with reference number AD/REG/CIR/58/VOL.VI/309 and dated September 7, 2021.

According to the institution, indecent dressing in the school was becoming a standard among students on campus.

The circular read: “After thorough deliberation on the issue, the Senate, in its wisdom, decided that the penalty for indecent dressing shall henceforth be rustication for one month semester, effective from August 25, 2021.

“Any student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko who violates the above Senate decision on indecent dressing is deemed to have committed misconduct and he or she shall be sanctioned accordingly.”
