Ebonyi State University sacks 63 Lecturers, Staff for forgery and sexual harassment lailasnews


The school’s Public Relations Officer, Patrick Itumo who confirmed that the management of Ebonyi State University sacked 63 Lecturers and Staff, disclosed that some of the laid off staff were found guilty of falsifying their age, presenting fake certificates and other relevant credentials after an audit report was submitted by a committee set up to verify credentials of workers of the institution.

“That is the reason for the action we are talking about; the disengagement. They are not over 300 as being speculated. As I speak to you, they are 63 in number that have been disengaged. There is this audit report that was brought out from where these people were disengaged, 63 of them. Some of them have age discrepancies in their records. Some people obtained doubtful First School Leaving Certificates; some obtained their WAEC before their First School Leaving Certificates. There are people who should have retired at the age of 65 or 70 years and they are still in service and also some adjunct professors who come from various places whose contracts have been reviewed up to five times.

“As of now, nobody among these people has been reinstated. Students are encouraged to come up with report of sexual harassment so that the school will look into it. They should talk to the authorities and they will be protected if they are afraid to make an open report on it.

“They should send message to the VC’s phone, to me or their course adviser; they will be protected. Recently, Chinedu Ogah of the Department of History and International Relations was dismissed for sexual harassment and extortion. Also Dr. Egbo of Education Faculty was also dismissed for sexual harassment. Other cases are still ongoing and as soon as they are determined, they will be published.” he said

  11. For a long time have been looking forward to such action to be taking and today I see it. I’m happy that this is happening and this action will go a long way to create fear to other lecturers in other universities about sexual harassment. This menace have been going on over decades and nothing was done. Good job by the management of Ebonyi state university and hope it continues to other universities.

  12. Good decision by the school authority. Other universities should embrace these kinds of punishments for defaulters.

    But the thing is that don’t they know all this before accepting them to work in the institution ??

  14. Other institution should adopt same measures do away with impunity and sexual harassment cases.

  15. What example are they laying na wa ooo some lecturers don’t deserve to be called one,but why did they not verify before employing them in he first place

  16. Serves them right, these naughty lecturers see female students as vulnerable prey to pounce on.

  17. When it get to some level and stage…..nothing can be hidden in life..the time for them to be expose has really arise and nothing can change it…….at least it would create space for young and fresh people to get in……..

  25. This is a good move. The rate of sexual harassment in universities is increasing. This should be a warning to other lecturers.

  26. Really disheartening to find out that those charged with ensuring that our youths tow the right path in life are the same people breaking the law! Bad Lecturers

  27. Who knows how long they been lecturing with fake certificates, and what impact they transferred to the students. These kind of stories only comes out from Nigeria, it shows how incompetent we are in virtual everything and everywhere.

  28. Good step taken by d school authority…it’s gonna serve as a warning to those lectures dat are planning to indulge themselves in things like this….it’s high time lectures stop harrasing students

  29. Good one and good examples in high institutions. Hope others will start doing their due diligence on this matters too.

  32. Nice job done of the schools management .atlist.others that do such will learn and stop this nonsen in schools

  33. 63 lecturers is quite a huge number. Uniebonyi , una weldone. Uniport should copy same ooo, students are suffering in pains and silence here

  36. This is a very good act. All this sexual harassment needs to stop especially in schools. It is becoming too much

  37. Forgery! Who knows what damage they must have done before now. The pressing question now should be how to make sure that only qualified persons are recruited next time.

  38. If the school authority dont take such drastic action, all this things will not have a end to it. I thank it is good for those that where sacked, they have learnt their lessons

  39. I hope other university in the country will emulate ebonyi university for this giant step they have take,they should get rid of the bad !eggs in ,the school

  40. Sexual harassment is going out of hand in Nigerian universities all because no action is been taken on the perpetrators. Abuses here and there. Thumbs up to EBSU VC for taking such bold step to inculcate sanity.

  41. That’s serves them Right, imagine those pot belle lecturers fausing and blackmailing innocent young girl to have see with them……… God punish thier past, present and future.

  42. Some lecturers in schools can be very annoying..
    It serves them right
    Now they will learn der lessons

  43. Other Universities should borrow a leaf from ebonyi University so that they too can fish out those cheating lecturers

  44. Very good! All these half baked, wicked and perverted lectures must go. The government deserves an accolade for taking this step

  45. This is serious oh….i pray they are reinstated soon…bad conduct should be eradicated ..this is massive sack!

  46. That’s good for them. I hope other universities will learn from Ebonyi state university and do same to their lecturers that are in the same category

  47. A great job
    Our university system needs thorough cleansing
    Other school should join the trend
    Younger qualified graduated are everywhere

  48. That was indeed a welcome development, because our higher institutions are turning into something else

  49. Discipline in School is not only meant for student but staff as well, good that those found guilty have been led off

  50. How can unqualified lecturers be in school. Well done for fishing them out. They should be disciplined

  51. Good an idea, If the school authority dont take such drastic action, all this things will not have a end to it. I thank it is good for those that where sacked, they have learnt their lessons

  52. I wouldn’t blame the sacked staff for their falsified documents because they were trying to get jobs. Its only when you lie about yourself that you get your way in Nigeria.

  53. if it is not politically motivated,its good for the ivory towers,atleast it will the space for the unemployed ones

  54. In as much as I support them taking punitive measures against such lecturers found wanting the institution should be mindful of the effect the sack will have on its administration

  55. Wow, l like that, that will teach others a lesson. They are have been doing that thinking nothing can be done.

  56. Kudos to them. other tertiary institutions should tow the same lane and get rid of these fraudsters who pose as lecturers and extort from students

  57. I wish other universities in Nigeria will emback on this kind of check and balances. Them plenty for our higher institutions.

  58. This is a very good measure by the school authority and I encourage all institution to do same and get rid of these liars in the academic world.

  59. That’s a good one from ebonyi uni, and jeez such a great number,may God continue to unveil the faces of this evil perpetrators
