UMUAHIA – Professor Uche Ikonne, the outgoing Vice Chancellor of the Abia State University, Uturu (ABSU), has said that the university under his tenure won the war against sexual harassment and cultism because the university deployed all arsenals available against the monsters.
This, he said, led to the sacking of some academic staff and non-academic staff who compromised the moral and academic standards of the university by asking sexual offer in exchange for good marks.
In an exclusive interview with some select journalists in Umuahia on Thursday, Professor Ikonne explained that both sexual harassment and cultism were treated as heinous crimes which the university under him saw as cankerworm that should be exorcised from the institution.
The don maintained that many lecturers who were involved in the misdemeanor had to turn a new leaf; even as some of them fought back to stop the university from continuing with the war.
“If you fight corruption, they say, corruption will fight back; many of them sought various ways of fighting back. However, many of them, including non-academic staff involved in this turned a new leaf by doing the right thing.
