The final year students of Mass Communication Department of the Federal Polytechnic Offa, have led a 2-Day campaign on Wednesday against sex for grade which is rampant in Nigeria’s institutions.
The students in a branded vest and big banner boldly writes “FEDPOFFA Say No To Sex For Grade” extended the campaign to the office of the Rector of the school.
Recall that some female students earlier exposed male lecturers while some lecturers were convicted for demanding sex for passing female students.
While addressing the students, the Rector of the institution, Dr. Lateef Olatunji expressed his readiness in curbing the act in the institution, urged the female students to report the case to the management.
He said, “ I am in full support of the campaign and I am ready to punish the culprit of such act.”
The rector who described the act as “immoral” encouraged the female students, in particular, to desist from such act added that “if any lecturer is making advances to you, learn to say No and also Report such act.”
He furthered that no lecturer is above the law, stressed that any lecturer who is found guilty of such an act will be termed criminal and will face the law as the institution will not cover up for any unlawful activities and such crime.
The sponsor of the campaign, the Mass Communication Department, led by the Head of Department Wole Alawode noted that he will tackle the debauchery to revive the glory of the department.
However, a student of Mass Communication, Bukola Adeniji, in an interview told reporters that, the campaign is a good stride and that the students hope the management will live up to their words.
“This is not the first time we would hear such, but I believe the management will live up to its words as the Rector has given us his word,” she added.
