Former NUC Boss Decries High Rate Of Prostitutes In Nigerian Universities

Former Executive Secretary of the Nigeria National Universities Commission (NUC) Professor Peter Okebukola has decried high rate of female prostitutes in Nigerian Universities, saying the trend tends to debase the country’s education system.

The seasoned University administrator who disclosed this in an exclusive chat with LEADERSHIP said he is not impressed with the study habits of many students studying in the nation’s Universities.

According to him, “Study habit is poor; they still bask in examination malpractice and are engaged in bad gangs and internet fraud. A number of female students are into prostitution. I am sure that the National Association of Nigeria Students and local student unions are taking steps to purge their members of these ills.

“Let me assure you that Nigerian Universities are still clearly the leader in the pack in Africa regarding quality of curriculum delivery. Without sounding arrogant, I have been in more than 70% of Universities in Africa and only two months ago, concluded a consultancy on the quality of University education in Africa”.

Okebukola said lecturers in Nigerian Universities are among the best and most respected and regarded in the region, saying the blight is mainly in the unstable academic calendar brought about by strikes, poor state of hostels and a sprinkle of other infrastructural deficits.
