The University of Ghana Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee has dismissed allegations of “Sex for Grade” being leveled against Associate Professor at the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana, Prof. Ransford Gyampo.
The Committee Chairperson Dr. Margaret Amoakohene argues that despite the fact that Prof. Gyampo may have misconducted himself in the matter, there is no material evidence of influence of grading of the student.
Prof. Gyampo and one other lecturer at the University’s College of Education, Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor have been indicted in the BBC Africa Eye’s “sex for grades” exposé.
Prof. Gyampo who’s also the Head of European Studies at the University of Ghana has denied allegations that he sexually harass female students at the University insisting he’ll take legal actions against the BBC.
Commenting on the matter in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, the Head of the University’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee says BBC’s allegations cannot be substantiated.
“If you look at the transcript that they added, there is no evidence of Sex for Grade. I agree that the lecturers misbehaved and so you will discuss these as unacceptable behaviour that should be investigated but there was no indication of Sex for Grade,” Dr. Margaret Amoakohene argued.
