Former students of the University of Port Harcourt(UNIPORT) have taken to Twitter to urge BBC Africa Eye to come to the school and carry out an investigation on Sex for grades.
This follows an exposé by the media giant on sexual harassment on students by lecturers in West African universities, that exposed two lectures from the University of Lagos(UNILAG) and University of Ghana.
According to these former students, lecturers of this institution carry out such harassment with reckless abandon, while begging BBC to stop next at UNIPORT.
What they are saying
Nobody has talked about lecturers that had beds inside their offices, I don’t want to believe it only happens in Uniport and RSUST

This sexual harassment, I know of a Uniport lecturer in my department who even have sex with students in his office on a chair.
My only problem was that Nigeria ignored this problem to the point that BBC had to carry the matter and it's painting a bad image for us #sexforgrades

Sadly, my uniport students are not even on twitter to share their own #SexForGrades experience

Those old vultures in ASUU are mute, in PH the story is worst.
A guy that has no money to pay or babe to bring will carry over that course until the lecturer resigns or dies or God specially intervances .
BBC come to UNIPORT /RUST
