The Anglican Archdiocese of Enugu has officially banned wearing of sleeveless dresses to church weddings, reception and services.

The Archbishop of the Archdiocese, Most Reverend Emmanuel Chukwuma, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu, on Monday.

Chukwuma said the ban was to return moral chastity on persons, especially women, who attend such functions in the church.

He said that the Archdioceses had directed priests and senior clergymen to henceforth inspect wedding gowns and approve them before the solemnisation of weddings.

The cleric also said using veils to cover sleeveless wedding dresses would not be allowed again in Anglican churches in Enugu.

“I have directed ushers and wardens in various churches in Enugu to ensure that no sleeveless-dressed girl, lady or women enters into the church under any guise.

“Whether it is the church wedding, reception or any other programme celebrated in the church or within the church premises, it will not be allowed,” he said.

“We will collaborate with the governors’ wives to organise seminars and workshops for fashion designers in the zone for them to join this campaign,” he said.

The archbishop said that the stance against indecent dressing would help to check sexual harassment and provocation, which lead to prostitution and rape in the society. (NAN)
