Prof. Ben Q. Hoenyenuga, Vice Chancellor of Ho Technical University has empowered lecturers of the University to sack students who dress indecently and provocatively to lecture Halls.
The Vice-Chancellor made these known at the University’s 28th Matriculation Ceremony held on Thursday.
A total of 2,166 students were matriculated during last Week’s ceremony, which was done in sessions, in compliance with the COVID-19 protocols.
He said as the University sought to maintain its reputation of decency and respect for the benefit of students, it would continue to forbid all acts of gross indiscipline and required from all students to dress suitably at all times.
He added that the University will not permit politically branded materials at lectures and official functions.
He further advised students, in their best interest, to distance themselves from all forms of destructive behaviors such as sexual assault, occultism, rape, waywardness, homosexuality, provocative dressing fighting and any form of physical assault, stealing, noise-making, use of drugs and alcohol and a host of other social vices that have gained notoriety among students of today in the University.
“ You must always dress decently. I have empower your Lecturers to sack any student from the lecture Hall who appear in provocative dressing. We do not tolerate wearing of political paraphernalia to lectures and other official functions of the University,” the VC stated.
Prof. Honyenuga said the University’s Guidance and Counseling Unit had been resourced to assist persons struggling with addictions of all forms and emotional instability.
