Ebizi Blessing Eradiri, the first female first-class law graduate of the Niger Delta University, Wilberforce Island, Bayelsa State, has narrated how some of her lecturers almost sleep with her for good grades.
According to the young lady who was made to replace former Big Brother Naija housemate, Rebecca Nengi Hampson, as the Face of Bayelsa Girl Child earlier, she scaled through the oppression by prayers and a lot of commitment.
She noted that she became very conscious of her choice of clothes which enabled her to get the best dressed female student in the Faculty of Law, in the year she graduated.
“I made sure I didn’t wear skimpy things that would expose sensitive parts of my body,” she said.
Naija News had reported earlier that Governor Diri on Monday, January 11 revoked Nengi’s appointment and replaced her with Eradiri.
Speaking at a homecoming reception tagged ‘#Schoolnobescam’ held in her honour by the Sele Eradiri Foundation in collaboration with other non-governmental organisations in Yenagoa on Wednesday, the proud graduate .
Naija News understands that Governor Diri had formally received the Bayelsa-born proud graduate in company of her father on Monday.
The governor announced the award of automatic scholarship for Eradiri’s master and doctorate degrees in any university in Nigeria or abroad. He also offered her automatic employment to lecture at the law faculty of the state-owned NDU and also declared her as the New Face of the Bayelsa Girl Child with a view to making her a role model for young girls in the state and the entire Ijaw nation to emulate.
“I was very conscious of my dressing, which enabled me to get the best dressed female student in the Faculty of Law, in the year l was graduating. I made sure I didn’t wear skimpy things that would expose sensitive parts of my body,” Eradiri reiterated.
Her statement reads futher: “I felt that was the starting point for me not to even attract the wrong lecturers to myself. I would say it was prayer because there was a time when we had a borrowed course and a particular lecturer was trying to do something funny.
“When I sensed it from that particular lecturer in the first semester, l called home and told them what was going on and we all prayed.
“At some point, l had to escalate the issue to my HoD and told her what the lecturer was doing; she called and warned him. These are some of the challenges the girl child is likely to face, but through prayers and escalating them to the appropriate quarters, l think they can scale through.”
According to her, the lowest grade she had during her university days was a ‘C’ which was given to her by a lecturer who insisted on having sexual intercourse with her.
She, however, vowed to deploy her appointment as the New Face of the Bayelsa Girl Child as a platform to propagate reading culture among the youth in the state.
