Sexual harassment: Stop going to lecturers unnecessarily - Minister


The minister of education, AdamuAdamu, has advised female students to stop going to lecturers unnecessarily.
.
.
He gave the advise on Tuesday at the unveiling of a policy document against sexual harassment by the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT).
.
.
Mr. Adamu also warned students against harassing their lecturers. “The federal ministry of education is embarrassed with the allegations of sexual harassment in Nigerian higher institutions. .
.
Girls should read their books and be able to defend their certificates. They (female students) should stop going to lecturers unnecessarily and should not harass their lecturers.
.
.
We are recommending UNIPORT’s sexual harassment policy to other higher institutions in Nigeria,” he said.
.
.
The school’s vice chancellor, Ndowa Lale, explained that the document defined the rules of engagement between lecturers, administrators and students, including visitors to the university.
.
.
“The document unambiguously defines what constitutes sexual harassment and the sanctions to be taken against those who wittingly and unwittingly infringe on its provisions in the line of duty.
.
.
Henceforth, lecturers and administrators who do not remember to sew zippers in front of their trousers should be ready to bear the consequences of their amorous liaison with female students.
.
.
Any Juliet (female student) who blackmails vulnerable male students or their colleagues into amorous sexual liaisons should be ready for the long arm of the policy on sexual harassment.
.
.
Also, visitors who believe that the university is a happy hunting ground for cheap sex should think again, as they would be apprehended, held liable and prosecuted in line with relevant provisions of the policy,” said.
