Generally, when arguments like this come up between a private and federal university; most people tend to tilt towards federal schools; because, ‘they have a lot more freedom’.
But do they really?
We’ll determine that at the end of this article.
Let’s see who has the toughest dress code between Unilorin and
University of Ilorin.
Although UNILORIN is not a private school; the university still maintains a strict dress code for its students:
- Female students are not allowed to make their hair with attachments.
- Coloured/dyed hair.
- Leggings / Jeggings trousers with cropped top.
- Transparent / See Through Wears.
- Skimpy dresses e.g. Spaghetti, Camisole only, body hug, topless blouse and shorts.
- Tight fitting wears.
- Heavy make-ups are not allowed for female students.
- Sleeveless clothes are also not allowed.
- Ripped jeans are also a no.
Those are a lot of restrictions.
Afe Babalola University.
ABUAD has bagged some major achievements; as just four years into its establishment; the school was ranked second best private university in Nigeria.
The school also maintains that students follow prescribed dress code:
- Male Students must wear the ABUAD tie; while Female Students must wear ABUAD scarves to all University Official functions.
- Jeans are not allowed during school hours.
- Ripped jeans are not allowed.
- Every faculty has a colour code; and all students can only wear shirts/blouses of that colour.
- Students must be coperately dressed from 8am to 5pm.
Now that we have seen both sides, which one is more tolerable for you?
What are the dress code in your own school? Are they better or even worse than these two?
