Don warns students, lecturers against sexual abuse, drugs, others


Medical Director of the Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Yaba, Dr. Oluwayemi Ogun, has warned students of the Federal School of Occupational Therapy (FSOT), Oshodi, Lagos State, to desist from examination malpractice and drug addiction or be expelled from the school.

Speaking at the school on Thursday when 49 students were matriculated for the 2019/2020 session, she also urged lecturers of the institution to nurture the students instead of taking advantage of them, saying any lecturer involving in such acts might lose their job.

Her words: “You are going to be occupational therapists; by that, you are one of the five stars of mental health professionals in which we have the psychiatrists, nurses, psychologists, social workers and occupational therapists. With the spate of drug addiction globally and Nigeria in particular, I urge you to desist from any activity that leads to drug addiction. You are youths and you must not spoil your future as a result of drug addiction.

“Aside that, examination malpractices are not condoned in this school. I am a woman and I can see that the majority of you are ladies. These days we hear about lecturers, ladies, sex-for-marks and all sorts of things. If any lecturer is caught doing such, that lecturer is going. They are in your hands; you are to nurture them and not to sexually abuse them.”

She, however, urged the ladies not to entice the men. “You must wear what is reasonable; don’t go enticing men for marks. If you do that, you are on your way out of this school and we do not want that for you.”
