The Vice Chancellor of the Akwa Ibom University, Prof. Eno James Ibanga, said his university does not give admission to students with tattoos.
He made the disclosure in an interview with newsmen, saying that students are thoroughly screened before being admitted, also to check that they do not belong to cults. One of the criteria for admission is the no-tattoo policy.
In the interview held at Kkpat Enin, Ibang said over 90 per cent of programmes of the institution have received full accreditation from the National University Commission.
Courses on religious studies, mass communication, history and international relations have received interim accreditation from the NUC, he said.
He said that the accreditation team from National University Commission would visit the institution to complete the accreditation of the remaining three programmes.
