Authorities at the University of Abuja, have dismissed two randy lecturers over allegations bordering on sexual harassment.

Their sack was disclosed by Professor Abdulrasheed Na’Allah, the Vice-Chancellor of University of Abuja, during a chat with the PUNCH Newspaper.

He said the institution had designed a communication channel for students to report cases of sexual harassment and other unethical acts by lecturers.

Na’Allah said, “We expelled two members of the academic community. We collaborated with NGOs most of whom pursue sexual harassment matters.

“Recently, there was a major conference on campus where students came out to expose some of the things that have been happening on campus.

“Right now as I speak to you, every University of Abuja student can report or comment on a lecturer via their student portal. Every student has this. They can comment on whether a lecturer is doing well in class, does he attend class. So it’s not only sexual harassment alone.”

The VC added that the varsity council also recently approved that students could assess their lecturers.
