The former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has commended the senate for revisiting the Anti-Sexual Harassment Bill.
The Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate expressed hope that the bill will help address the sex for grades crisis rocking Nigeria’s universities.
The Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege had on Wednesday during plenary reintroduced the Anti-Sexual Harassment Bill.
Omo-Agege noted that the reintroduction of the bill is due to the call by parents and youth that law should be passed against sexual harassment in workplaces and educational institutions.
Atiku who took to his Twitter account wrote: “I welcome the reintroduction of the Anti-Sexual Harassment Bill, a carryover from the 8th @NGRSenate.”
“I hope that it will be one among several interventions in addressing the #SexForGrades scourge and in ensuring that our campuses are rid of predators.-AA”
