NCCE boss, varsity VC bag 2019 campus safety leadership impact award



Prof. Bappa Aliyu, the Executive Secretary,  National Commission for Colleges of Education(NCCE), has been named one of the three winners of the 2019 Campus Safety Leadership Impact Award.

Other winners are Prof. Ndowa Lale, Vice Chancellor, University of Port Harcourt, and Prof. Eno Ibanga, Vice Chancellor, Akwa Ibom State University.

Mr Ike Onyechere, Founding Chairman of Exams Ethic Marshal International (EEMI), who announced this on Friday in Abuja, said that Aliyu bagged the Award in recognition of his contributions to the development and implementation of policies that enhanced relative peace and harmony in the Colleges of Education sub-sector of tertiary education in Nigeria.

According to him, the Award Committee also cited his support and contributions, as Executive Secretary of NCCE, to ongoing efforts to develop early warning toolkit for early identification of warning signs of cultism in primary and secondary schools by teachers.

“The knowledge, when eventually infused into the curriculum of Colleges of Education, will empower teachers and students.

“It will also help the school administrators to initiate early preventive and precautionary actions that will check the spread of cultism to primary and secondary schools,’’ he said.

He said that Ndowa, as VC of Uniport, is on record as the first Chief Executive Officer of a tertiary institution in Nigeria to articulate a formal public presentation of a Sexual Harassment Policy Document.

“The document, presented in October 2019, unambiguously defined what is sexual harassment and the sanctions to be taken against those who wittingly or unwittingly infringe on its provisions in the line of duty,’’ he explained.

Onyechere said that Ibanga, as VC of AKSU, demonstrated strong leadership and political will in combating sexual assault, extortion of female students and campus cultism in the school.

He added that the University recently terminated the appointments of eight lecturers, while the cases of other lecturers were still in court for sexual harassment and extortion of female students.

The Nigeria News Agency , reports that the ceremony was organised by the Independent Award Committee of EEMI with the recipients expected to receive the medals on Dec. 12, 2019.

The ceremony is the climax of the National Consultative Conference of Education Leaders on combating campus cultism and sex-for-grades menace scheduled to hold from 9th to 13th December, 2019.
