Nigerian Senate Passes S3xual Harassment Bill

A Bill that seeks to protect students in the nation’s tertiary institutions was passed for third reading in the Senate on Tuesday.

The Bill titled: “A Bill for an Act to prevent, prohibit and redress sexual harassment of students in tertiary educational institutions and for matters connected therewith, Bill, 2020” was sponsored by the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie-Omo Agege (Delta Central) and co-sponsored by 105 other Senators.

President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, in his remarks said that Bill is intended to protect female students from undue sexual exploitation.

Lawan said: “This is a very important legislation that this 9th Senate has passed.

“We have to protect our sisters, our daughters and our mothers from predators but also in the process we could see clearly that we wanted a very fair means of determining what offence somebody is accused of.

“So it is a balanced legislation and we pray that those educators don’t have to be taken before the courts of law for any offence.

“We want our tertiary institutions to be very important, safe and peaceful learning environment for everyone. This is a legislation that will ensure that wish.”

The Bill as passed proposes 14-year jail term for any educator found guilty of the offence of sexual harassment.

  1. Bill is not the problem its the execution of the bill thats the wahala. Do u knw how cumbersome it is to remove a head lecturer??? I guess u dont✌️✌️

  2. Is like the 9th Senate loves this number 14 so much.
    Since the same sex 14 years, how many people have gone to jail even for a night?

  3. It should be for both sex not just female. Men too are sexually harassed. Plus it should be at every level of education. Not just limited to university

  4. Nice one but always include the male gender in your bill, let it be applicable to both genders! Do they think that guys don't get harrassed sexually too in schools? Just like it's not in our institution that a boy or man can be raped. They can so better!

    Naija, think! It's not difficult!

    Implementing the said law will still need prayers. This country no just follow.

    1. This is what happens when we have unintelligent sissy men at the helm of affairs. They end up taking decisions from their wives without scrutiny, this is how the western men find their selves in the situation they ate presently.

      As regards the rape law.. it actually protect women and children (boys and girls below 18- statutory rape). But it doesn't protect men, except under Abuja law.

      Since NO means NO like females wants us to believe, what of when a girl is Ontop of a guy just having foreplay, and the guy tells her to wait let him wear protection, she replies, "I'm just using it to rub it, I won't put it in", then all of a sudden, she Sluts it in and start riding, is that not rape in this context too, since that sex happened without is consent. I bet ladies won't see it like this now since it concerns men and most are guilty of it. I'm driving somewhere with this illustration, but only very few would get it.

      Wrote a detailed post on rape some years back. Still thinking if I should send STELLA, I wonder if she would post sef cos it is might seem controversial LOL..


    2. Dante you are a stupid rapist....all these you wrote here is rubbish. no woman will come and tell you she just wants to use your dick and rub what. you guys are the one who dothat shit...keep supporting rape, one day you will be disgraced. big fool, bloody chauvinistic pig

  5. Good development
    It should be for both sex, i hope it's implemented soon

  6. Nice move but with no gender bias

  7. The issue is not passing the bill but implementing it is where the challenge lies.
