Former Executive Secretary of National University Commission (NUC), Prof. Peter Okebukola, has blamed academically weak students for the sex-for-mark trend occurring in Nigerian University.
Speaking with NAN, Okebukola also laid some of the blame on some universities. According to him, most of them have satellite campuses admitting unqualified students who opt to offer sex to get grades.
”If, in the first instance, a student is academically good, what will a lecturer tell her, sex-for-which mark?
All those girls who run after those lecturers or can be harassed by lecturers are those who are academically weak. Even, if the lecturer does not want to get engaged with them sexually, the girls will offer them their bodies.
If at the point of admitting our students, we ensure that they have met some respectable score that when you teach them in class they can understand and do well on their own; then the problem would have been addressed,” he said.
