13 Lecturers sacked over sexual offences

The National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) on Thursday announced the dismissal of some senior lecturers, and the termination of appointments of other workers in Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi.
According to him, the development was the outcome of an investigation following a publication by The Punch newspaper of April 9, 2016, with the title: ‘School Where Prostitutes Assist Male Students To Get Marks’.

He said: “The summary of the publication indicated that students hire prostitutes or beg their girlfriends to sleep with lecturers on their behalf in order to earn marks.
”The lecturer chooses a hotel of his choice and the affected students pay the hotel bills, which include the meals before the action.

”Some of the lecturers give the option of paying by cash, which cost between N10,000 and N20,000, which could give the student not more than a ‘C’ grade.

One Chief lecturer, one Principal Lecturer, one lecturer I, and one Lecturer II were warned, while a Chief lecturer and one Senior Technologist were advised to be of good conduct.
”In addition, two senior lecturers were cautioned, an Assistant Lecturer is to be mentored and one ND student is to be advised, while another student denied admission into the polytechnic,’’ Kazaure said
