Students at the Covenant University have been banned from wearing a kind of dressing.
The authorities of the Covenant University (CU), Ota, Ogun State, announced a ban on “all black” dressing by students of the institution.
The faith-based private institution owned by the Living Faith Church Worldwide, warned students to strictly adhere to the new order which forbids them (students) from appearing in full black dress on campus from the next session.
Announcing the new order on its website on Saturday, the university explained that students could combine, for instance, black cloth with any other colour, but reemphasised that any student who violates “all black” prohibition would be duly sanctioned.
The university further banned its students from wearing a brand of shoe known as Brogues shoes.
“All students should note that from next session, wearing black shirt/top on black trousers/skirt is prohibited. Black material can only be worn with other colours. Also note that shoes called “Brogues” are highly prohibited, hence all students must desist from wearing them. Erring students will be sanctioned appropriately,” the statement said.
