The Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), Dr. Musa Adamu Aliyu, SAN, has promised to intensify action in fighting sexual harassment in tertiary institutions.

Dr. Aliyu, who made the pledge recently while receiving a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Gender Mobile Initiative in the Commission, emphasized the need for continuous partnership in eradicating sexual harassment in tertiary institutions in order to move the educational system forward.

He expressed displeasure that students were abused by lecturers whom they looked up to for guidance and mentoring.

“We are going to work within the confines of the law and also in accordance with the national best practices to ensure that we tackle sexual harassment in tertiary institutions”.
