Parents, CSOs urge Gov Oborewori to not only suspend but also sack Provost Oyovwi of College of Education, Warri

The increase in reports of assault and abuse within the sacred grounds of the academia by lecturers and their adminstrators is no longer news. What is news though, is that many of them get away with such abuse of power where they weild unimaginable influence and the code of “see no evil, speak no evil” is the mantra they live by.

As citizens’ awareness heightens about their rights alongside the domestication of the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act (VAPPA), parents and students alike are no longer keeping silent. The proverbial knee on the neck that leads to wailing: “I can not breathe”, is a shackle guardians and wards no longer can bear.
