The Consumer Protection Council (CPC) has commended the on-going prosecution of the dismissed lecturer of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Professor Richard Akindele by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

DAILY POST recalls that Prof. Akindele was on Thursday remanded in prison by a Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo for allegedly demanding sex from his student, Monica Osagie.

CPC in a statement signed by the Council’s Director General, Mr Babatunde Irukera and made available to DAILY POST, while commending the on-going prosecution, charged authorities of higher institutions in Nigeria to diligently confront sexual harassment and other related conducts within the institutions with a view to ensuring a conducive learning environment for students.

Irukera noted that such commitment to sexual harassment cases would restore the reputation of institutions.

The statement reads: “The Consumer Protection Council (CPC) charges authorities of higher institutions in Nigeria to diligently confront sexual harassment and other related conduct within the institutions with a view to ensuring a conducive learning environment for students, who are consumers of the schools’ educational services.

Irukera said such a commitment from the leadership of the institutions would not only be reassuring to students, who are primary consumers of the educational services of the schools, but would also restore institutional reputation.
