A civil society organisation, Exam Ethics Marshals International says it had sent a petition signed by over 5,550 parents, pupils and other stakeholders to the office of the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.

The Groups also demand the speedy passage of the bill for the prohibition of sex-for-grade and other forms of sexual harassment.

It added that the petitioners were made up of 56 per cent females and 44 per cent males, noting that the petition was pasted on the internet and more people were still signing the petition until the bill is signed into law and implemented.

The Group’s Chairman, Ike Onyechere, in a release said the bill had earlier been frustrated when it was first introduced in the 8thAssembly in 2016.
