    Over 80% of the lecturers and the female students are into harassment of each other.

    Acts of Corruption in tertiary institutions. But why set up special Committies? Are there no formal institutions with the responsibility of discipling erring staff, like Senior/ Junior Staff Disciplinary Committees? We should strenghten existing Institutions instead of setting up ad hoc Committees. Please Governor Wike consider this. You could send a delegation from your state owned tertiary institutions to the University of Benin for under study.
