Staff and Students of the Shehu Idris College of Health Science Technology, Makarfi, Kaduna State have condemned the decision of the college governing council to reinstate a randy bursar sacked for sexual harassment.
NAN reports that the management of the college sacked the bursar following series of petitions; bordering on sexual harassment filed by his victims.
He, however, appealed the decision, and the governing council was; directed by the state Ministry of Health to further investigate the matter.
In the final report, the five-man committee set up by the council said; “the allegation of sexual harassment against the accused, Labaran Muntari Usman should be; disregarded.”
It suggested that the ex-bursar “may be exonerated from the allegations.”
But respondents on Friday stated that the governing council was; wrong in its decision, warning that the reinstatement of the bursar may lead to a breach of the peace.
Malama Ziyanatu Musa said: “Any move by the governing council to exonerate the ex-bursar will amount to breach of peace and an attempt to restore immorality in the college.”
Musa who claimed to be; one of those continuously harassed by the bursar, said even though she did not succumb, it would be; unfair to victims of the bursar’s alleged sexual harassment to allow him to resume.
A staff, Malam Sabitu Sani alleged that the lifestyle of the ex-bursar was so open, to the extent that students use it to taunt his daughter studying at the college.
“This is what led to series of petitions against the ex-bursar and the petitions yielded positive results that led to his sack,” he said.
