SEX FOR MARKS: NUC ASKS VARSITIES TO EXPOSE LECTURERS’ NAMES


The National Universities Commission has asked universities in the country to advertise the names of lecturers found guilty of sexual harassment in newspapers.


The Executive Secretary of the NUC, Prof. Adamu Rasheed, said this on Monday during the 33rd conference  of the Association of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities held at the Redeemer’s University, Ede, Osun State.

Rasheed noted that sexual harassment had become rampant in Nigerian universities. Calling for drastic measures to put an end to the problem, he said:

“Sexual harassment is a major challenge in our universities and we must take a decisive action to curb it. Universities should be determined to curb this and we just have to be very serious about it. 

“It is damaging our reputation and we must do everything to stamp it out. Whenever you sanction somebody, let their names be advertised in newspapers so that the public will be aware that they have been punished. This will stop them from taking advantage of our girls and boys in the universities.”

Speaking on the need for urgent reforms in Nigerian universities, he said the NUC would soon publish a directory of professors in all the institutions.
