Unless some steps were taken by about 35 prospective students, the authorities of the University of Ilorin reportedly denied them admission into the school by preventing them from taking part in the post- UTME screening over indecent dressing.
TheStreetReporters.com gathered that the affected candidates were mostly female.
The victims had assembled at the centre designated for the computer based (CBT) test at the permanent site of the institution when officials in charge of the test turned them back on account of their dressing considered not decent enough.
The authorities of the University, had in an advertorial before the commencement of the test, set guidelines for prospective candidates, one of which compels candidates to dress decently to the examination venue.
According to sources, all entreaties by the affected candidates fell on deaf ears as they were turned down in line with the university’s zero tolerance for indecent dressing and other ‘anti-social’ tendencies.
The implication of the development is that the 35 candidates may have automatically forfeited their chances of writing the crucial examination, which would have allowed them get admitted into the tertiary institution.
The school’s Deputy Director of Corporate
Affairs, Kunle Akogun, denied knowledge of the development.
Tactically, however, he added that “it is possible” because of the war against indecent dressing on the campus.
