American media entrepreneur, Oprah Winfrey’s speech at the 75th Golden Globes Awards is an inspiration to many women including a Facebook user, Funke Dezarn, who revealed how she was harassed by her lecturer while she was still in the university.

Funke’s lecturer failed her twice because she refused to give in to his sexual advances.

Encouraged by Oprah’s “Time’s up for brutally powerful men,” Funke decided to share her story, which has also given other women who went through such to come out with their ordeal.

She wrote,

Oprah’s speech on Golden Globe tonight inspired me to post this.

“Dr.Med.Dr” Francis Andy Fakoya of Anatomy Department OAU Ife-Ife, Nigeria, you destroyed many young lives through your sexual harassments. As that was not enough, you used your power as a teacher to Medical Students, to fail any student that refused you. Some of the student victims repeated the class, some like me were lucky to have just a resit, while some were thrown out of Medical school.

I chose to say NO to you and you failed me in Anatomy 2 times (Part 2 and Part 3), which are the only failures I have on my transcript!!! I remember your words to me both times, a day before both exams, “Agree to sleep with me or you fail and resit the exam”.
Wherever you are tonight (St George’s University, Medical School, Caribbean Island), for all the lives you affected negatively, TIME’S UP!!!


#metoo #Goldenglobe #Timesup #Oprahthankyou

Pls share this post as many times as can until this message gets to him! He destroyed too many lives.
