Nigerian Singer, Seun Kuti has called out the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over the group’s silence on the trending #SexForGrades scandal.

Following the release of the BBC undercover investigation video, several celebrities and Nigerians have reacted to the sexual harassment faced by girls in Nigerian universities.

His reaction followed the publication of the #SexForGrades documentary on Monday by BBC Africa Eye.

The 13-minute documentary captured the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the University of Ghana.

A senior lecturer in the Faculty of Arts, UNILAG, Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, was filmed sexually harassing Kiki Mordi, an undercover journalist who posed as a 17-year-old admission seeker in the institution.

Seun, son of late Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, wrote in Pidgin English on Tuesday on Twitter that Nigerians were waiting for ASUU to speak on the burning issue.

“ASUU leaders make una no pretend like say una no hear all dis noise about una members accuse of sex for grades in our unis, if na una money struggle now, una go expect both activists and students to rise and fight for una, now d students need una to rise and fight for dem too,” he said.

The singer also attacked the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, for keeping mute on the government’s position in bringing an end to sexual abuse in institutions of learning.

“Oga Adamu Adamu wetin u b minister of education for wen der is a national issue affecting all our unis and u no fit tell us govt position on dis, r u in support of d lecturers demanding sex for grades ni, abi why we never hear from u about it as d minister of education,” Seun said.
