    Ali Baba speaks on the need for education in preventing sexual harassment

    Published on

    Ali Baba stresses that education is key in countering burning issues.

    Nigerian comedian Ali Baba has emphasised the need for education in preventing issues like sexual harassment and murder.

    Speaking on the Classic FM segment The Discourse With Ken, Ali Baba highlighted the importance of education for children, particularly those under 10 years old.

    He began,” Someone asked me two days ago ‘If you could change one thing across the world what would it be?’ I would give formal education to people between the ages of birth and 10.”

    The comic stressed that education within the formative years of children leads to a better understanding of boundaries and other burning issues as they grow.

    “It is so critical and it is the failure to do that that makes people not know the value of life, or the essence of humanity and not know that you have to respect each other’s space, values and boundaries. All that can be achieved through education,” he said.

    Ali Baba then recalled an incident in which he witnessed a man sexually harassing a woman.

    “There was a time I asked a man ‘Why are you touching the lady? She is not responding to you and you’re dragging her and then he said That’s how women behave.’ Shey you see. If you’re educated enough, you’d know that that is sexual harassment, you would know that such an act can escort you into some jail time,” he narrated.

    He continued, “The other thing is when you say certain things like ‘no is no’ to certain people, because they aren’t educated, they would argue with you. Some would say ‘Some women ehn when they say no, they mean yes’. So when you get jail term now, you’d know.”

    He also stressed the need for education in preventing senseless murders, asserting that a person who is educated on the value of human life would know better.

    “I said we were going to talk about burning issues in the national space. For example, a group of men would not go and kill military men when they know that you shouldn’t even kill any human being in the first place. If you are educated enough you would know that dialogue and justice are the best way to get anything you want,” he concluded.
