The Kenule Beeson Saro-Wiwa Polytechnic, Rivers State which was formerly known as Bori Polytechnic, has dismissed ten Lecturers and suspended seven in connection with sex for grades scandals.
Onengiye Georgewill, Rector of the institution disclosed this when the Rivers State House of Assembly Committee on Education visited the school on oversight function.
The Rector made it known that apart from the sacked ten lecturers, seven others were suspended for the same offense while several others demoted.
He expressed joy on the fourteen years jail term proposed by the Nigeria Senate for sex for grades and advocated for a twenty-year jail term for any offender.
“We have been doing this even before the issue started trending. We have been doing this before the Bill was presented. We have a very proactive governing board. When they came, the issue of illicit sex and examination malpractices became their focus.
“They identified these issues and set up a structure to look into them and that’s why we have been able to identify some of our staff that indulge in them,” the Rector stated.
