The Federal Government has warned female students against going to lecturers unnecessarily and to desist from harassing them.

Yhe Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, stated this at the formal presentation of Sexual Harassment Policy Document by the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, October 29, 2019.

Adamu, represented by Mrs Ijeoma Duru, an Assistant Director, Tertiary Education Department in the Ministry, said the government is embarrassed by increased allegations of sexual misconduct in the country’s tertiary institutions.

He charged female students to desist from going to lecturers unnecessarily and urged them to take their studies seriously to avoid undue exposure to sexual predators.

“The Federal Ministry of Education is embarrassed with the allegations of sex-for-grades in Nigeria’s higher institutions.

“Girls should read their books and be able to defend their certificates and as such, make them less vulnerable to sexual predators.

“They (female students) should stop going to lecturers unnecessarily and also should not harass their lecturers,” he said.

Commending the management of UNIPORT for being the first to unveil a policy document against sexual harassment, the minister pointed out that the policy would go a long way in curbing the menace of sexual harassment in Nigerian higher institutions.

The minister noted that the sexual harassment policy launched by UNIPORT should be adopted by other tertiary institutions.
