Christian University bans ‘Apuskeleke’

apusAll forms of indecent dressing, especially those that expose the vital parts of female students-popularly called ‘apuskeleke’ has been banned on the campus of Christian Service University College (CSUC), a leading private tertiary institution in Kumasi, with immediate effect, the President of the university has announced.

Prof. Emmanuel Frempong, CSUC President, stated that “indecent exposure will not be tolerated on this campus”, adding that lecturers had been empowered to expel any student, that comes to lectures shabbily dressed.

He sternly warned lecturers at the school to abide by the new rule to avert finding themselves in trouble, stressing, “Any lecturer that will allow half naked students to sit in their class will be driven away.”

The CSUC President gave the caution during the 34th Matriculation ceremony of the school which was under the theme ‘The Making of an Ambassador,’ held at the school’s Odeneho Kwadaso campus last Saturday. CSUS, he emphatically remarked, was formed on Christian principles so it does not only offer degrees to students, adding, “it is our vision to inculcate in our students ethical values and help make them a better person than they came.”

Prof. Frempong also cautioned the students not to indulge in any unlawful acts whilst on campus, stressing that the school authorities would not hesitate to deal ruthlessly with any student that engages in criminal activities such as dealing in narcotic drugs. “It is an offence for a student to be in possession of, or peddle any kind of narcotics and hard drugs on campus,” he said.

He added, “Offenders will face a disciplinary panel for appropriate punishment which may include expulsion and police prosecution,” stressing it is an offence for a student to drink alcoholic beverages or offer alcoholic beverages to another person to drink on campus.

In all, 757 students, out of which 61 percent and thirty nine percent were males and females respectively, swore the matriculation oath to begin a four-year degree programmes in Business Administration, Communications Studies, Theology and Computer Science.

Prof. Frempong decried the low intake of female students this academic year, admonishing female students to shun all immoral acts and rather study seriously to compete squarely with their male counterparts academically. With a motto that reads, “To know Christ Better and to Make Him Better Known,” the school which was formed in 1974, now has a student population of 1951.

Prof. Frempong expressed delight over the immense growth of the school, especially over the last few years, promising his outfit’s desire to provide students with the academic, physical, moral and spiritual environment within which they can identify, nurture and develop to the best of their potential.
