About thirty-five lecturers in the nation’s tertiary institutions have been indicted and dismissed over intercourse misconduct in the past five years, according to analysis.
Although the Senate had in 2021 passed a bill that randy lecturers be subjected to 21 years imprisonment, the PUNCH reported that most of the lecturers indicted and found guilty after the bill was passed were simply sacked.
According to the reports, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, topped the list of institutions with the highest number of lecturers indicted for intercourse misconduct.
Reacting to the persistent case of misconduct in the tertiary institutions, the National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, urged students to report cases of harassment to the school authorities and the student union.
He added that the union had an Ethics and Grievances Committee that looked into such cases, stating that boxes where students can anonymously report such cases were placed on campuses.
