Egalitarian Team: NGO Urges Tinubu To Sign Bill To Address Sexual Harassments In Tertiary Institutions

Egalitarian Team – A non-governmental organisation has urged Nigeria’s President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to assent to the Sexual Harassment in Tertiary Educational Institutions Bill so as to address such negative trends in schools.

The Convener of Egalitarian Team, Segun O. Akinlabi, said in a press briefing in Ibadan on Monday 27th November, 2023, he said, Sexual assaults is a sad tale that needs to be tamed by a relevant law, like the sexual Harassment bill. The signing of the Sexual Harassment Prohibition in Tertiary Education Institutions Bill will mark a significant milestone in the fight against sexual harassment.

“The delay in presidential assent has left a void in our collective efforts, and we trust that the President’s commitment to the well-being of Nigerian students will translate into swift and resolute action.

“We look forward to witnessing a tangible demonstration of the President’s dedication to creating safe and nurturing learning environments for all especially women,” he said.

He further explained that the president’s action, or lack thereof, will send a powerful message about the nation’s values and its dedication to fostering an environment where every student particularly female students can thrive.

Mr Segun Akinlabi acknowledged the roles played by the Federal Ministry of Education in Nigeria, anti-graft agencies, whistle-blowers for speaking up against sexual assaults but added that the bill was the best way to go in addressing the malady.

“The Sexual Harassment Prohibition in Tertiary Education Institutions Bill presents a promising solution. This comprehensive legislation is crafted to address the nuances of sexual harassment, providing a clear definition of offences, establishing stringent penalties for perpetrators, and outlining mechanisms for the prevention and redress of sexual harassment,”

“Despite the urgency of the matter, the Bill has lingered on the desk of the Nigerian President awaiting the seal of approval.

“This delay is disheartening and raises concerns about the commitment to eradicating sexual harassment within our educational institutions, Akinlabi said.
