The Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, has released a number of banned clothing items on the school premises.
The school erected a billboard in the school, depicting various lousy and immoral dressing types.
They included distressed jeans, crop tops, spaghetti tops and much more. A picture of a woman in a veil (niqab) was also included in the billboard, which led to a mass reaction from the Muslims in the school.
It took the swift intervention of the Acting Vice Chancellor, Prof Ololade Enikuomehin, who also called for calm and apologised to the Muslim Students over the needless attack on their religious sensibilities.
Enikuomehin expressed his apology to the leadership of MSSN, promised to immediately revisit the issue and subsequently ordered the removal of the controversial billboard after much pressure and display of disapproval to it by members of the MSSN.
The MSSN Amir, Abdul-Azeez Olawale Shobajo, said: “It is on this note that we want to tell all Muslim Students of FUNAAB to remain completely law-abiding on this issue. If you must express your rights to opinions, do so lovingly with advices to the management, for, truly, isn’t our young minds, opinions and relations, and the perspectives of the wise old, what bring about this community?
“The MSSN FUNAAB, choose, like always, to follow what the religion preaches which is to give excuses to entities and not be quick to display opprobrium. This is what we have always been known for and that is why official steps are being taken to seek justice to this matter.”
