Vice president Yemi Osinbajo says the notion that victims or potential victims of sexual harassment are architects of their fate especially by their attitude in dressing or willingness to be in a compromising places with their violators is wrong and should be resisted in every situation.

The Vice President at a webinar on anti- sexual harassment themed “”finding safe spaces for female students in Nigeria universities” organized by the Obafemi Awolowo University Ile Ife said the victim must always be seen as the victim and not to be blamed.

He advocated stricter punishment for rapists especially in situations involving lecturers and their female students noting that there can never be any excuse especially given the power of configuration between students and lecturers that the victims could have somehow invited the abuse.

Prof Osinbajo added that every Institution must make it easy for victims or potential victims to report Perpetrators to trusted formal structures or secure channels specifically for the purpose of resolving such cases.
