Don condemns UNILORIN ban on hair extensions, alleges plot to Islamise institution

Don condemns UNILORIN ban on hair extensions, alleges plot to Islamise institution

An academic, Prof. Rufus Adedoyin, has condemned the recent ban by the University of Ilorin, Kwara State, on the use of hair attachment, and any form of Brazilian hair, by female students of the institution.

Adedoyin, who is a professor of Physiotheraphy, at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife noted that the ban was totally unacceptable in public higher institutions as the school was not a private establishment.

He added that even if the school gave a dress code, it shouldn’t have included the use of hair extensions in it.

“The dress code should not include that. Provocative dressing is only frowned on by all institutions. Ladies have the freedom of making their hair nice and attractive. University of Ilorin is not a religious based school, neither is it a private school. This is a step to gradually Islamise the institution and that move should be resisted,” he said.

The ban, according to a memo dated 22nd of January 2017, noted that the female students in the school were expected to go natural, which, according to the school, is a way of being modest and a better reflection of individual character and personality.

In 2017, the management of Unilorin gave a similar notice indicating that all students were reminded that there was a dress code put in place by the University, which must be observed at all times as the University was determined to continue to impact positively on its students, not only intellectually but also morally in pursuit of its avowed commitment to the development of total man.

The memo noted that the management of the institution  would award its degrees to only deserving students, who had been found worthy, not only in learning but also in character, thereby urging students  to exhibit good behaviour and dress decently at all times.
