The University of Ghana Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee has dismissed allegations of ‘Sex for Grade’ 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 is also the Head of European Studies of the University has denied allegations that he sexually harasses female students of the institutions adding that he will take legal actions against the BBC.

Commenting on the matter in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, Dr. Amoakohene argued that the 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 an unacceptable behaviours that should be investigated but there was no indication of Sex for Grade.”
