The vice chancellor of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, Prof. Joseph Ahaneku, on Thursday said more than 40 percent of the staff of the university spend more time watching pornographic videos and other illicit films at work than doing the work for which they are employed.
Punch reports that when the VC got the report of the trend and discovered that some people sat in their offices only to watch illicit movies during office hours, he took a decision to curb it by censoring internet services in the university from his office.
“This is one reason we shut down YouTube from the university’s resource center. People should be made to be conscientious as well as do what they have been assigned to do and eschew indolence. There have been a lot of abuses on facilities that, ordinarily, should aid staff in their jobs and as a result plan is are underway to remove the televisions in central offices. Spending government time without doing what one is paid for is an act of corruption.”
