Atiku Abubakar, Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has reacted to the footage of the #SexForGrades scandal involving a University of Lagos Lecturer, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu shamelessly demanding sex from his student in exchange for good grades.
The PDP Presidential Candidate in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle said;
I have just read the story on #SexForGrades across public tertiary institutions in many West African countries. This is unacceptable, and requires systemic strategies to put a deterrence to such behaviour.
As a society, we cannot allow a trend that is psychologically abusive to young women to thrive. In fact, that’s a direct opposite of what a sound educational system represents. – AA
In the Africa Eye documentary presented by Kiki Mordi, Dr. Boniface is seen smooching an undercover journalist who posed as a 17-year-old secondary school student interested in gaining admission to the university.
Shockingly during the documentary, Boniface, also a Foursquare pastor, goes into a prayer session with the ‘teenager’ while massaging his legs against his penis vigorously, his penis appearing to be erect. At the end of the prayer, he embraces the teen and tells her “Welcome to the Kingdom of God.”
