Sex-for-marks culprits will be punished, says Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari said anyone caught henceforth for trading in sex for marks in the nation’s tertiary institutions would be made to face the full weight of the law.

President Buhari issued this warning on Wednesday in his address at the 35th convocation of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) in his capacity as the institution’s visitor.

Buhari, who was represented by a deputy director in the National Universities Commission (NUC), Dr Suleiman Ramon-Yusuf said: “It is most disheartening that people who are expected to train, guide and groom students in loco parentis turned round to breach the trust and confidence reposed in them by exploiting the students entrusted into their care and under their tutelage.

“Henceforth, all culprits shall face the full wrath of law as they will be prosecuted and those found guilty will serve the stiffest punishment under the law.

“I urge our university administrators in particular and all categories of staff to spare no efforts in ensuring that our higher institutions live up to the expectations of training and developing graduates who are in truth and indeed, worthy in character and learning.”
