The Anambra State Government has banned the wearing of miniskirts in both public and private schools in the state.


This is just as schools in the state will be resuming for the new academic session on Monday.


The Commissioner for Education, Prof. Ngozi Chuma-Udeh, announced the government’s decision during an interactive meeting with education secretaries of public and mission schools held at the Anambra State Universal Basic Education Board

hall, Awka, on Saturday.

Chuma-Udeh decried the growing trend of female pupils putting on miniskirt uniforms to schools.

She pointed out that it was morally wrong and unacceptable to the standards desired for the children by the state government.

She said the acceptable length for uniforms in the state remained knee length and not above the knee as was fast becoming the fashion.


The commissioner charged the education secretaries to ensure schools comply with the directives to salvage the future of the pupils in the state.


She charged the participants to infuse the right morals and discipline in pupils so that they would grow to be good behaviour and conduct.


According to her, a student should look smart, well groomed, project positive vibes and not be indecently dressed for school.

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