UniAbuja Takes A Stand Against Sexism And Removes Two Professors.

University of Abuja announced on Monday that two lecturers had been fired for suspected sexual harassment. Prof. Abdul-Rasheed Na-Allah, the university's Vice-Chancellor, stated this in an interview with NAN in New York, United States of America. He claimed that the institution had implemented a sex abuse policy on campus, claiming that the policy had been made public.

Na-Allah, who was in the United States for a two-day visit to meet with the University of Abuja Alumni Association, USA branch, to collect support for the university, stressed that female students need to be safeguarded. He stated that the university is devoted to high moral standards and that any act of wrongdoing by its employees against students would not be tolerated. "Since becoming vice-chancellor, I've fired two academics." It demonstrates how concerned we are about the issue of sexual harassment. We're working with a number of non-governmental organisations and NGOs to ensure that this issue is not only addressed by UniAbuja but that we have solid cooperation. "We cannot allow our kids' lives to be ruined; most abuses devastate the lives and destinies of their victims," he stated. The institution is presently examining the behaviour of teachers who are known for assaulting female students, according to the VC. Na-Allah discusses the institution's aspirations for the future. The VC stated that the university was working around the clock to ensure that it become Nigeria's number one institution, adding that the only way to do this was for students to enhance their academics. "We are attempting to give all of the amenities that kids require, such as smart classrooms, internet access on campus, and other locations," he said.

Also, 4 lecturers at Ambrose Alli University have been fired for egregious misconduct. In a similar event, the management of Edo state-owned Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma, has laid off four teachers. At an emergency meeting of the Special Intervention Team (SIT) when the report of the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee (SSDC) on the charges against them was discussed, the institution authorised the professors' dismissal for suspected wrongdoing. They were fired from the university for allegedly illegally collecting unauthorised fees, falsifying student records, and other serious offences.
