It might come as a shock to us all but the Bayero University Kano Management has released the Rules and Regulations for the BUK Dress Code.
Reports reaching us indicate that the University’s role of training students in both character and learning points that all students should dress decently in accordance/compliance with the Bayero University, Kano Dress Code.
Accordingly, the acceptable and decent dress is any type of dress worn by a student, that covers the body from the top of the shoulders to midway between the knee and the ankle, and it must not be tight-fitting or transparent.
