It’s Unacceptable, Says Atiku On Lecturer Harassing ‘Admission Seeker’ For Sex

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the February 23 election, has condemned the action of a University of Lagos lecturer, Boniface Igbeneghu of the Faculty of Arts, for harassing an admission seeker for sex. 

Atiku, who reacted to the video in a series of tweets, said the act is unacceptable and requires systemic strategies to put a deterrence to such behaviour.

According to him, the society should not allow a trend that is psychologically abusive to young women to thrive, adding that it is a direct opposite of what a sound educational system represents.

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,” he said.

On Monday, Newsbreak.ng reports that a documentary filmed by Africa Eye, a BBC Programme, exposed Igbeneghu for soliciting sex from students in exchange for good grades. 

In the video, Igbeneghu, also a Senior Pastor at Foursquare Church, is seen speaking inappropriately to a reporter disguised as a 17-year-old admission seeker. 

He had told the teenager that sex for marks is nothing new in Nigerian universities. He explained that his peers use the Senior Staff Club in the university premises for their illicit activities.

He said an upper area at the club, which is famously called the ‘Cold Room’ is where the deed is done.
