Delta Polytechnic bans face cap on campus, destroys 5,000
The management of Delta Polytechnic, Ozoro, has banned the use of face caps by students on campus.
NAN reports that the rector of the polytechnic, Job Akpodiete, gave the order shortly after the burning of more than 5,000 face caps seized from students.
Mr Akpodiete, represented by the Dean of Students Affairs, Thomas Ojuye, said the move was to check indecent dressing among students on campus.
“The management of the polytechnic came up with an advice to students to dress in a manner that is acceptable to the institution and the public.
“Sequel to the directive by the school management, the use of all manner of caps by students on campus has been proscribed,” he said.
The rector said the polytechnic’s security unit had been authorised as a matter of importance to destroy seized caps henceforth.
The polytechnic, he said, had over the years, witnessed relative peace and cult-free academic environment.
Mr Akpodiete described the feat as a product of conscientious and proactive measures put in place by the management of the polytechnic.
