Anambra state government bans use of miniskirts as school uniform

The Anambra state government has banned the wearing of miniskirts as school uniform in all schools in the state.

According to NAN, Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, the commissioner for education, disclosed this in Awka, the state capital, on Sunday.

Chuma-Udeh said the directive would be enforced in both private and public schools in the state upon resumption on Monday.

The commissioner also said the ban had been communicated to education secretaries of public and private schools in the state.

The commissioner condemned the growing trend of wearing miniskirts as school uniform, adding that such is morally “wrong and unacceptable” in children of school age.

“A student should look smart, well groomed, project positive vibes and not be indecently dressed for school,” she said.

“The acceptable length for uniforms in the state remains knee length and not above the knee, which is fast becoming the fashion trend in schools”.

The commissioner said education secretaries had been charged to ensure that schools complied with the directive to salvage the future of students in the state.

Chuma-Udeh also urged the secretaries to instil the right morals and discipline in students so that they would be well-behaved and grow to become responsible adults.
