The management of the University of Jos (UNJIOS) has warned its students against using social media to publish anything negative about the institution.
The Vice-Chancellor of the school, Professor Sebastian Maimako, gave the directive on Wednesday during the matriculation ceremony for 7,000 students ahead of the new session.
Maimako stated that students must obtain written permission from him, through the registrar, before they go ahead to post such information.
“In line with the extant rules of the university, no student is permitted to publish anything concerning the university without the written permission of the vice-chancellor through the registrar,” he said.
He also banned any form of indecent dressing, directing security agencies to arrest any student whose appearance was deemed inappropriate.
Maimako also warned that improperly dressed students would be barred from entering offices and attending lectures.
A total of 31,759 candidates chose UNIJOS as their first choice, with 25,785 for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and 5,974 for Direct Entry in the 2016/2017 session.
