#SexForGrades: Ex-Covenant University VC Blames Students’ Indecent Dressing, And Lecturers Lack of Fear of God
A former Vice-Chancellor of Covenant University, Ota in Ogun, Prof. Charles Ayo, has identified indecent dressing and lack of fear of God as major factors contributing to the issue of sexual harassment in the country.
Prof Ayo disclosed this while speaking with Newsmen on Tuesday in Ota against the backdrop of a UNILAG lecturer caught in the act.
YAWNAIJATV reported earlier that a Senior Lecturer, Dr Boniface Igbenegbu of the Faculty of Art, University of Lagos, Akoka, was recently caught on camera making sexual demands of a student seeking admission into the institution.
Professor Ayo revealed that it was really unfortunate that issues of sex for grades had become rampant in the country’s tertiary institutions.
“Lack of discipline by the lecturers and the way some of the students dress are reasons for their molestation,” he said.
Ayo said that lecturers and faculty members were supposed to act as parents to the students.
The professor also known as the don, however, called for reorientation of the people generally to eliminate the decadence in the country and its tertiary institutions.
He urged students to dress appropriately, saying that “the way you dress is the way you will be addressed by others’’.
