This work is prompted by the desire to fathom Male Student Perception Of Indecent Dressing A Study of Heritage Polytechnic as a modest contribution of the polytechnic management  declaration  to eradicate indecent dressing in the polytechnic community. The primary sources of data collected by the researcher were got through structured questionnaire and interviews from Heritage polytechnic students, while secondary data were collected from books, journals, newspaper and other written materials from the analysis and discussions, The findings made in the analysis of the questions posited  indicated that students who involved themselves in indecent dressing perform badly in their academics; it causes failure, sexual victimization, among others. The Study finally recommends that a  policy should be formulated to ensure that professional take charge of checking students to ensure that they comply to laid down dress code and ensure that violators are strictly penalized.




Indecent dressing has become the order of the day in most higher institutions of learning. It is a state of being improperly dressed with the aim to seduce or draw unnecessary attention to ones person. Omode’s exposition emphasizes that ’indecent appearance has come to characterize the dress pattern of many student’s in campus of higher learning in Nigeria” (2011: pg 4), there is hardly any institution of higher learning in this country that is not being plagued with this nauseating problem. The manner of dressing adopted by these students especially the female ones leave much to be desired. The skimpy and tight fitted nature of these dresses reveals the story state of moral decadence among our students in Heritage Polytechnic These dresses besides being stumpy and tight are also transparent and as a result revealing certain parts of the bodies that should have been covered under normal dressing pattern.

Girls are not only people guilty of indecent dressing boys are also guilty of putting on dirty and unkempt hairs and dirty jeans having pockets of holes deliberately created around the knees and lower part of the trousers also the waist of these trouser are lowered and fastened tightly at the middle of the two bottoms to reveal their boxers (pants) and when they are walking they drag their legs and one of their hands particularly, the left one cupping their invisible scrotum as if they will fall to the ground if not supposed. Many of them because of how they dressed at one time or the other become victims of rapes, lured into prostitution, used for ritual purposes, unable to complete their education or training and also engaged in other auxiliary social and moral problems like cultism’s and lying to mention these few.  Although there are not known universally acceptable way or ways of dressing dresses are meant to serve some definable purpose, country or region notwithstanding.

They are part of the peoples’ culture and they are defined in their tribal or ethnic identity. Apart from dresses being a means for culture identity they are for ornamental or aesthetic purposes for protection of the body against harsh weather condition as well as covering the intimate part of the body. Those purposes are important especially as they form major aspects of a person’s personality. But as important as those purpose are they have been defeated by the Nigeria youths, their dress pattern are most time anti-African dress pattern invented. They usually dress in a manner that does not show especially that of Nigerian encourages modesty in appearance as do the Christian and Islamic religion where the larger population of these Youth claims to be worshiping God. This un-African dress pattern among the youths of this generation has generated a lot of concern and worry among the citizenry of the country. Religion institutions as well as institution of learning are not resting on their bars to watch this moral act being perpetuated but they speak against it. For instance Olori (2003: pg 7) reported that “at the University of Abuja rules were made that ’’any dress worn must cover intimate part of the body must not expose the breast stomach novel and bare chest’’. But on this Campus student still dress indecently.

In the same vein in Heritage Polytechnic, where this study is focused, it seems that the introduction of a dress code was misinterpreted by the students to mean the should dress indecently. This is because what became obvious with students in this college after the introduction of this dress code was the alarming and arrant ways that they begin to dress indecently. One is not however surprised because what is typically of most Nigerian administrators is always a wide gap between policy and formulation and execution. Indecent even though is not accepted as the normally it seem to be gaining ascendancy. One wonders what becomes of the society tomorrow with the caliber of student that are being trained.

If rules are made for people, they are supposed to be adequately informed why such rules are made. It is for this very reason this project attempts to counsel student about the cause, effect of indecent dressing as well as suggestion of solutions that could remedy the further spread of this immoral act on campuses of learning in Nigeria.


The  statement of the problem of this research shows that indecent dressing is not just a behavior that developed overnight but an accumulated behavioural pattern that could be attributed to the home due to neglect and/or poor parenting.

The rate of indecent dressing among the Nigerian institution of learning is causing a lot of concern to education stakeholders. There has been increase in dropout rate, carry over rate and outright failure rate among the students and some attempt by the Government and public to control it has yielded no fruits.

In Heritage polytechnic, Male students sees girls who involves dresses indecently as wayward people and prostitutes.

The effect of globalization arising from wrong value of exportation and importation, reflection of high rate of moral decadence in the large society (corruption and the led), peer pressure and the desire to belong as well as fading values and demonic influence all contribute to the act of indecent dressing.
