Sex-For-Marks Lecturers: See What FUNAAB VC Asks Students To Do
The Vice-Chancellor, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Prof. Kolawole Salako, has asked female students of the institution to report any lecturer that demands sexual favours from them to the authorities.
Salako made this known to journalists on the sidelines of the institution’s 30th Anniversary Lecture, which was themed: 'A robust regulation system: An imperative for quality assurance in Nigerian universities' delivered by a former Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission, Prof. Julius Okojie.
The vice-chancellor noted that the management of the university had in the past sacked some lecturers who demanded sex from female students in exchange for marks.
Describing the act of making sexual demands from female students as an aberration, he urged students to speak out.
"We have sacked a lot of lecturers in the past who were found guilty of demanding sex in exchange for marks.
"I have given the students of this institution the assurance of 100 per cent support from the authorities if they are abused.
"We won’t condone sex-for-marks in this university. We also frown on the act of demanding gifts in exchange for marks.”
