The Governor of Cross River State, Ben Ayade has said that female university students who are sexually molested are dullards.
He said this during a 1 km walk in Calabar to commemorate this year’s “16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence (GBV)” in the state.
Ayade was represented by Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Ms Tina Agbor.
Advising young women, he said, “Because the society has told you that for you to be a complete woman, you have to be married, many women are holding on to very wrong and abusive relationships.
“As a woman, you must add value to yourself for the men to respect you because when you reduce yourself to nothing, the men will kick you around.
“As a girl in the university, study hard and no one will take advantage of you because they know that you are worth your onions.
“Some of the university girls that say they were sexually molested are dullards who visit lecturers privately to beg for marks.”
