Following the recent outrage on the #SexForGrades report by BBC Africa, the wife of the Ekiti state governor, Bisi Fayemi, has also opened up on her experience as a university student.
The Cable reports that Bisi while speaking on Monday, October 7, at the premiering of the #SexForGrades video, a 53 mins documentary exposing some obscure activities by university lecturers against their students said the acts are condemnable.Stating that some lecturers have developed a culture of entitlement on the bodies of their female students, Bisi said, she shed a tear over the experience the young students get to face.“I cried because what these young women have to experience is the story of many of us who passed through higher institution in this country,”
Bisi said.“I was educated here in Nigeria and I too was a victim of sexual harassment during my university days. I was luckier than these victims,” Bisi added.Explaining that her ordeal with the unnamed lecturer was unpleasant, Bisi also said that there was a code of silence during her time on issues such as this.”It didn’t go that far but it was extremely unpleasant and of course, back in the days when all these things happened you can’t tell anyone because if you do even up till now people ask you to keep shut,” she said.
