Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has rejected the ongoing s*xual Harassment Offences Bill, in the Senate, saying the bill was targeted at lecturers.



According to the union, the bill is vindictive and it undermines university autonomy.

ASUU President Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, while speaking yesterday, in Abuja, at a public hearing on the bill, organised by the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, asked the Senate in particular and the National Assembly, in general not to allow the bill have its way.

Professor Ogunyemi said their is an existing law that prescribed punishments over misconduct generally among both staff and students, clearly articulating appropriate redress mechanism.

“Any law or bill which seeks to supplant these laws violates the university autonomy,” he said.

“In this particular instance, the bill violates the Federal Government of Nigeria and ASUU agreement of 2009 and as such should be rejected,” Ogunyemi said.

He also noted that s*xual harassment was a societal problem and not peculiar to tertiary institutions and so tertiary institutions should not be singled out for such law.
Thisday cullage.

Efforts by the Senate to prohibit s*xual harassment in Tertiary institutions yesterday suffered a setback as the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) vehemently kicked against its passage, saying that if passed the Bill would ham­per university autonomy.

ASUU President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, stated this at a public hearing on the Bill organised by the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters in Abuja yesterday.
According to him,
Quote
“As a global norm, universities and other tertiary institutions are established by law as autonomous bodies and have their own laws regu­lating their affairs.
“This includes miscon­duct generally among both staff and students, clearly articulated appropriate redress mechanism. “Any law or bill which seeks to supplant these laws violates the university autonomy.
“In this particular in­stance, the bill violates the Federal Government of Nigeria and ASUU agree­ment of 2009 and as such should be rejected.”


He also condemned the bill as being discrimina­tory arguing that it was targeted at lecturers.

The ASUU President said it was unfair for the Senate to have come up with such a bill, stressing that s*xual harassment is a societal problem and not peculiar to tertiary institu­tions.
