Activist requests that female lecturers collaborate against sexual harassment

A Human Rights Activist, Dr. Abiola Akiyode-Afolabi, has called the Academic Staff Union of Universities and other pertinent scholastic associations to ascend and battle the rising instances of inappropriate behavior in Nigerian colleges.

She prompted that if ASUU and other scholastic associations were hesitant in remaining against the danger, ladies speakers should frame their scholarly associations to battle inappropriate behavior and sexual orientation-based savagery which she included was a “disrespect” to higher foundations of learning.

Akiyode-Afolabi, who is the Founder Director of Women Advocates Research and Documentation Center, expressed this in a meeting toward the finish of one-day training support for lecturers and executives on the insurance of young ladies in a tertiary organization in Bauchi State.

She stated, “I think ASUU needs to sit upright now, non-verbal communication of ASUU isn’t indicating that they are prepared to handle this issue head-on. In the event that ASUU doesn’t think it is critical to talk about this issue since they consider it to be ladies matter, at that point ladies in higher establishments should begin their own Academic Staff Unions.”

She mourned that lewd behavior and sexual orientation-based savagery had influenced training adversely bringing up that a lot of understudies had left school since they fizzled for an offense they didn’t submit.

The human rights lobbyist depicted sexual and sex-based brutality as an issue for the nation and the instructive framework, focusing on that “it’s a major issue.”
