Sex for marks: Nasarawa Varsity seeks state Assembly’s collaboration

The Nasarawa State University, Keffi, has solicited the support of the state House of Assembly and other stakeholders in tackling all forms of unethical conducts capable of undermining the institution’s reputation.


The Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the institution, Prof. Suleiman Mohammed, made the appeal on Tuesday while receiving members of the House of Assembly Committee on Education.

Mohammed stressed the determination of the institution towards tackling unethical conducts among members of staff and students in order to sanitise the system.

“We will be fair, just and transparent. Everything will be based on the time-tested principle of rule of law and there will be no sacred cow in fighting unethical conducts in this institution.

“Among the academic staff, you have cases of not conducting lectures regularly, not attending to students’ scripts and projects, selling of handouts and books and sexual harassment, amongst others.

“Among the non-academic staff, you have cases of collecting money to attend to students, keeping students on long queue, altering scores, examinations expo and sexual harassment, amongst others.

“Among the students’ unethical conducts are membership of secret cults, cheating during examinations, not attending lectures, fighting and abusing, rape, indecent dressing and prostitution, amongst others,” he said.

The vice chancellor, while pledging his commitment to carrying the institution to greater height, commended the committee for the visit.

Earlier, Hon. Daniel Ogazi, the Chairman of the committee, said that the visit was to assess the budget performance of the institution for the 2019 fiscal year.

“We are here to assess your budget performance for this year with a view to addressing any challenge, if discovered,” he said.

The lawmaker assured the institution of the Assembly’s readiness to do everything possible to make the university a world class institution. (NAN)
