Barely 24 hours, Authorities of the University of Ghana, Legon, has reacted to the explosive BBC documentary which exposed the immoral activities of lecturers towards their female students.
BBC Africa yesterday released the full video on Sex for grades documentary. In the documentary, two of the university’s profound lecturers, a Political Science lecturer, Prof. Ransford Gyampo and a lecturer at the College of Education, Dr. Paul Kwame Bukator were fingered in the exposé.
However, Chairperson of the anti-sexual harassment committee of the University of Ghana (UG), Dr. Margaret Amoakohene in an interview with Citi News refuted allegations made against these two lecturers.
She further stated that she sides with the fact that it is total misconduct among those lecturers and thereby calls for further investigations, she disagrees with the “sex for grades” tag.
“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 behaviours that should be investigated but there was no indication of sex for grades. In one case, it was about the national service placement. Who needs grades at national service? She completed and she was looking for placement,” she said.
She continued by saying: “In the other case according to the transcript, the lady approached him [Prof. Gyampo] and said she wanted him to be a mentor. She actually confirmed she wasn’t his student but asked that he mentors her. So where is the grade involved in this? You are able to discuss grades and sex when you find a lecturer who is dating his own students, and either unnecessarily giving them grades that they don’t deserve or marking them down because they have refused your advances. But in the two cases that are cited, I don’t see sex for grades.”
