Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila (State House)

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has described the ‘Sex for Grades’ documentary on Nigerian lecturers as a ‘moment of reckoning’.

Concise News had reported that Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, a former sub-dean of Faculty of Art, Unilag and head pastor of local Foursquare Gospel Church, was caught on camera soliciting for sex from a lady “seeking admission.”

Condemning the act, Gbajabiamila said those lecturers denied victimized students “their sense of self worth and left them with psychological wounds”

Gbajabiamila wrote: “The revelations in the BBC #SexForGrades documentary brings to the fore despicable practices that have victimised too many young people, denied them their sense of self worth and left them with psychological wounds that often never heal.

“These revelations call for a moment of reckoning, not only for those lecturers whose abuse of their position and the trust of their students has been caught on tape, but those who are still hiding in the shadows.”
