The management of Nnamdi Azikiwe University has denied ever making any statement that says 40 percent of its staff watch pornographic videos via the internet.
The management stated this after it was reported that 40 percent of the staff population at Nnamdi Azikiwe University watch pornographic videos online.
However, a statement from the university administration denied making such speculations.
According to the statement by the university Director of Information Dr. Emmanuel Ojukwu and made available to newsmen, the school described the information as false.
The statement said: “In the course of discussion generally about staff productivity in the last Senate meeting, the vice chancellor including other Senators condemned truancy, lateness, watching of ‘inappropriate’ videos including home movies during office hours.
“No specific mention of any percentage of those watching these movies was made. And also no such word as ‘pornography’ was mentioned.
“As a result the Vice Chancellor added that measures were being taken to monitor and make sure that staff do the work for which they get paid.
“It is therefore a complete surprise that some persons are peddling falsehood in the media to achieve a hidden objective.
“While the University appreciates the right of persons to spread information, distorted information could be injurious to society’s wellbeing.
“We therefore implore all our staff, students, alumni, and friends of our great University to please ignore this current machinations of mischief makers whose only aim is to tarnish the hard earned reputation of our University.”
