Popular university bans hugging between student and lecturers

Some few weeks ago a documentary was released which implicated some university lecturers who are in the act of exchanging sex for grades.

As part of plans to prevent such acts from happening, the University of Port Harcourt, UNIPORT has banned hugging between female students and their lecturers.

According to the school, it’s now an offense for both student and lecturers to be seen hugging and anyone caught in the act would be severely punished.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Ndowa E. S. Lale at the launch of the policy ceremony, which held at Ebitime Banigo hall said the University decided to raise the bar on sexual harassment to ensure that the young men and women put in the charge of lecturers are protected, especially from antics of sexual predators who use their privileged positions to blackmail or railroad their unwilling students or subordinate staff into granting them sexual favors.

He said the management of the University in the policy document defined the rules of engagement in terms of the acceptable engagement between lecturers, administrators, and students, including visitors to the university. Prof Ndowa vowed that sanctions would be meted to earring members of staff but added that there was a robust in-built checks and balances to protect those who are innocently accused.

Professor Ndowa warned that any person so accused would be presumed guilty until he or she could prove otherwise under the established rules of fair hearing. Prof Ndowa also warned that henceforth, lectures and administrators who did not remember to tell their tailors to sew zippers in front of their trousers should be ready to bear the consequences of their amorous liaison with female students.

He also warned that the same applied to students who harassed lecturers to award them undeserved grades, saying they should equally be ready to face the music if and when caught in the act of self-advertisement to their lecturers.
