The University of Ghana Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee has rejected allegations of ‘Sex for Grade’ being levelled against Prof. Ransford Gyampo who is an associate professor at the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana.
The chairperson of the committee, Dr Margaret Amoakohene argues that there is no material evidence of the influence of grading of student for sex by the lecturer.
According to Dr Margaret Amoakohene despite that Prof. Gyampo may have misconducted himself, there is no validation in BBC’s ‘sex for grades’ documentary.
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 earlier denied allegations that he sexually harass students at the university for grades and even threatened to take legal actions against BBC.
Speaking in an interview on Citi FM, the Head of the University’s Anti-Sexual Harassment committee indicated that the 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 an unacceptable behaviours that should be investigated but there was no indication of Sex for Grade,” Dr Margaret Amoakohene disclosed.
