More Lectures Fired Over #SexForGrade Scandal

More Lectures Fired Over #SexForGrade Scandal
A lecturer was fired at Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Port Harcourt while 10 other lecturers were suspended on reports of desperate students requesting cash or sex for grades.

Prof. Ozo-Mekuri Ndimele, University Vice Chancellor, revealed this when on Wednesday the Education Committee of the Rivers State House of Assembly led by Christian Ahiakwo visited the institution as part oversight function.

Ndimele did not give details of the lecturers sanctioned by the university.

To encourage excellence in academic performance among students, the VC said “We will give N1m to any student who has a CGPA of 4 points in our next graduation.”

He disclosed the institution got a cash donation of N300m from Pastor David Ibiyeomie, the General Overseer of Salvation Ministry, to build 100-room hostel.

He said the project is 80% completed, and will be commissioned in December this year.
