Auchi Polytechnic Sacked 12 Lecturers For Sleeping With Their Male Students’ Girlfriends

12 lecturers at Auchi Polytechnic Edo state, have been sacked by the
National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) after they were found
guilty of giving high marks to their male students who offer them
prostitutes or their girlfriends for sex. A report published in one of
the National Dailies in April this year, exposed the activities of these
randy lecturers. An investigative panel comprising of officials from
EFCC, ICPC, NBTE, others was launched and after a thorough
investigation, the lecturers were found guilty.

Executive secretary of NBTE, Masa’udu Kazaure, announced the sack of the
lecturers at a press conference in Kaduna state today. He also
disclosed that male students who can’t offer their girlfriends or
prostitutes for higher mark, were asked to pay bribe between N10,000 and

“The summary of the publication indicated that students hire prostitutes
or beg their girlfriends to sleep with lecturers on their behalf in
order to earn higher grades in their courses. 

The lecturer chooses a hotel of his choice and the affected students pay
the hotel bills, which include the meals before the action. Some of the
lecturers give the option of paying by cash, which cost between N10,000
and N20,000, which could give the student not more than a ‘C’ grade. We
promptly informed the Minister of Education, Independent Corrupt
Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC), Economic and
Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) and Department of Security Services
(DSS). Consequently, the minister approved the dismissal from the
services of the polytechnic two chief lecturers, two principal lecturers
and one Lecturer I. Also, four chief lecturers, one Principal Lecturer,
one Lecturer I, one Lecturer II and one Higher Technician had their
appointments terminated. 

 The minister also approved the demotion of one Chief Lecturer, four
principal lecturers, three senior lecturers, three Lecturer I, four
Lecturer II, and one Senior Instructor. One Chief lecturer, one
Principal Lecturer, one lecturer I, and one Lecturer II were warned,
while a Chief lecturer and one Senior Technologist were advised to be of
good conduct. In addition, two senior lecturers were cautioned, an
Assistant Lecturer is to be mentored and one ND student is to be
advised, while another student denied admission into the polytechnic” he
