The University of Ghana has stated that there is no evidene to proof that its lecturer, Professor Ransford Gyampo slept with the lady in the sex for grades documentary.
Gyampo and a College of Education lecturer, Dr. Paul Kwame Bukator, were indicted in the sex for grades documentary by BBC.
Speaking with Citi News, Dr Margaret Amoakohene, who chairs the anti-sexual harassment committee of the University of Ghana (UG), said the documentary lacked concrete evidence to proof sexual harassment.
“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.
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” she said.
