Most University Girls Sexually Molested Are Dullards – Ayade





Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State has said that most university girls who are sexually molested are dullards.

Ayade said this on Wednesday in Calabar at the end of a kilometre walk to commemorate this year’s “16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence (GBV)” in the state.

The walk took off from Cultural Centre Calabar to the premises of the state Ministry of Women Affairs.

Ayade was represented by Ms. Tina Agbor, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), at the event titled “Orange the World: Leave No One Behind, End Violence against Women and Girls.”

Ayade said society made women believe that marriage was a special qualification, making many of them to submit themselves to be hurt.

He added that while society was now preaching against GBV, women must refuse to be put down, adding that they could only be their own limitations.

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.”
