Sex for Grades in Higher Institutions, We the People Conducts Survey in Tertiary Institutions

In the last decade, there has been a notable rise in the sexual harassment of female students in higher institutions characterized principally by the demand for sex for grades. In recent times, this problem assumed alarming proportions and national notoriety when a University lecturer was recorded demanding sex in exchange for examination scores.

Preliminary investigations by We the People and partners indicate that this phenomenon is not only widespread, but is also impacting heavily on the educational system and the quality of graduates.

As part of the Youth Participation Against Corruption Project, Youth Alive Foundation and We the People have launched a survey to determine the extent to which sex is demanded from students in exchange for grades, who the principal culprits are, and the impact it is having on tertiary education in Nigeria. The survey which begins in Rivers state in June 2019, is also being carried out across the country in selected higher institutions.

To carry out the survey, We the People trained 20 student volunteers and supervisors to gather relevant data from students, which will in turn inform the structuring of a new anti-corruption campaign to stem the menace.

This project named SHE – Sexual Harassment in Higher Education-  is supported by the Youth Alive Foundation through a DFID grant

  4. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to
    go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    tell someone!
