9th Assembly To Put Schools On Their Toes Over S*x For Grades Scandals

9th Assembly To Put Schools On Their Toes Over S*x For Grades Scandals

NAN reports that a member of the House of Reps, Babajimi Benson (APC-Lagos), says the 9th National Assembly is in a position to put school administrators on their toes to monitor sexual harassment in schools.

Benson made this known on Thursday in Abuja at a news conference after the house honored the country's best teachers.

He said it was very unfortunate the BBC report on s*x for grades alleging that Nigerian teachers harassed students.

According to the lawmaker, the school involved in the scandal has commenced disciplinary actions against the teachers.

“Our job is to provide oversight and budgetary allocation, we promise to do that effectively in the 9th Assembly and also put the school administrators on their toes.

“The 9th Assembly takes education very seriously,”
 he said.
The BBC had on Monday released a video clip indicting a University of Lagos lecturer soliciting for sex from a female student in return for good grades.

The outrage over the alleged sex-for-grades scandal pushed the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to call for an investigation and sanctions on the lecturer in order to sanitise the system.
