What’s Nigeria’s government doing about sex for grades lecturers?
In May 2016, Nigeria’s Senate considered a bill that would slam a five-year jail term on lecturers who exploit students sexually. But the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) umbrella body of teachers at Nigerian universities kicked against it.
However, President Muhammadu Buhari who spoke on sex for grades has promised to support the National Assembly when they come up with Bill to prosecute offenders.
Sexual harassment isn’t a Nigerian exclusive problem, it is also an epidemic in UK universities as reported by in 2017.
Above all, sex for grades lecturers are found in the universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, even they can be found in secondary schools.
