Atiku reacts to video of Nigerian lecturer, pastor allegedly seeking sex from admission seeker
Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections has reacted to viral video of University of Lagos (UNILAG) lecturer caught on camera demanding sex from an “seeking admission.
The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in the last elections has described as ‘unacceptable’, the behaviour of the lecturers caught in the BBC Africa #SexForGrade investigation.
A University of Lagos(UNILAG) senior lecturer, Faculty of Arts, also the head pastor of a Foursquare Gospel Church in Lagos, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, was one of the lecturers exposed in the video.
According to Atiku, systemic strategies are required to put a deterrence to such behaviour.
Speaking via his Twitter handle on Monday, Atiku said the Nigerian society can not afford to allow “a trend that is psychologically abusive to young women to thrive.”
He wrote on his twitter: I have just read the story on #SexForGrades across public tertiary institutions in many West African countries. This is unacceptable and requires systemic strategies to put a deterrence to such behaviour.
As a society, we cannot allow a trend that is psychologically abusive to young women to thrive. In fact, that’s a direct opposite of what a sound educational system represents.
