NANS has reacted to the sack of the OAU professor involved in a s*x-for-marks scandal in the university.
It has been reported that the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), has lauded the Senate of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife for relieving a lecturer, Prof. Richard Akindele of his duty for involving in a s*x scandal.
It will be recalled that that the Obafemi Awolowo University sacked Professor Richard Akindele for allegedly demanding s*x from Monica Osagie to upgrade her mark.
The NANS’ National Public Relations Officer, Mr Bestman Okereafor, made this remark in a statement on Thursday in Enugu.
Okereafor said that NANS believed that sacking the lecturer was in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to the fight against all forms of Human Rights abuse within government and its institutions.
He said that it would serve as a deterrent to other lecturers, who might be nurturing similar habit or already indulging in such misconduct on campuses across the federation.
Okereafor said that NANS implored the university to as a matter of urgency, prosecute the lecturer in a court of competent jurisdiction to face the full wrath of the law.
According to him, NANS is also calling on the female students to shun indecent dressing within and outside the campuses so that they can always protect the dignity of motherhood.
“The leadership of the over 40.1 million Nigerian students both at home and the diaspora under the auspices of NANS, salutes the authority of OAU for its decision,’’ he said.
