Students of the Ghana Institute of Journalism have been cautioned to stop wearing “miniskirts and shorts” or risk being sanctioned.
This directive was given by the Rector of the school, Dr Wilberforce Dzisah. He opined that the warning comes on the back of the rise in indecent dressing among students.
“Management has raised concerns about an increase in the indecent dressing by students. Management has therefore decided on the following, and this should not only go to freshmen and women but for the continuing students as well. No shorts or miniskirts are to be worn for lectures. Clothes which expose your vital parts shall not be entertained,” he warned.
Dr Dzisah added that management would punish any student who fails to obey the directive.
He further noted that the rationale for this new directive is to ensure that students do not sway away from their core focus why they are on campus.
“Life at the University can be intellectually and socially engaging and exciting. However, one can easily lose focus and stray into fruitless and unproductive ventures,” he said.
