The Students Affairs Division of the Lagos State University (LASU) has published a list of 84 students for indecent dressing.
The university official bulletin obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday, in Lagos, said the students were found flouting the dress code of the university.
The bulletin said the university authorities had issued the students warning letters to desist from such act or face disciplinary action.
“The students have been magnanimously pardoned by the university authorities and were warned to desist from the act of indecent dressing, henceforth, or face disciplinary action,” the bulletin said.
Meanwhile, Professor Olanrewaju Fagbohun, vice chancellor of the university, said his administration remained focused on implementing plans and strategies that would improve infrastructure and facilities in the institution.
Fagbohun said within the past 200 days he spent in office, his administration had been able to attract keen interest from benefactors and investors, both from the public and private sectors. ?
“Step by step, LASU is beginning to distinguish itself, over the past seven months, as a lot has been achieved and a lot more is in the offing,” he said.
According to him, another core agenda of the administration is to beautify the University.
The vice chancellor said it was unfortunate that some members of the institution were still fond of crossing the lawns and stepping on the flowers and grasses.
“This is not in line with global best practices. As global citizens, we must recognise that plants are not only to beautify the environment, but also to mitigate the negative effects of climate change.
“You all are an integral part of this agendum, if we truly want to attain the standard of the Ivy League Institutions, we must begin to see crossing of lawns as a “sin”
“Also, as a breach of global norms and societal expectations, we must all endeavour to use the walkways at all times,” he said.
Fagbohun reiterated that the language of his discourse remained dialogue and the beauty of it was the peace, stability and progress that it brought.
“We should, therefore, not allow for distractions,
In all these, the interest of our students remains a non-negotiable priority.
“We will always allow you to air your views in the most civilized manner possible, as we are interested in knowing your grievances.
“Kindly channel these through your Faculty and Students’ Union Representatives to the Dean, Students Affairs, we will surely attend to them, ” he said.
Fagbohun noted that discipline and respect for rule of law are the primary ingredients of a functional society and the administration would be fair in the pursuit of its goals.
