Sex For Grades: Prof. Gyampo Denies Video Evidence
An outspoken political science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Professor Ransford Gyampo has denied abusing his power to make sexual advances towards students.
Professor Gyampo was allegedly implicated in the “sex for grades” investigations carried out by BBC Africa Eye.
“I didn't see anything like that [in the video] and I have not done anything like that,” he said in a Citi News interview.
Professor Gyampo, who is also the Head of European Studies at the university, according to the BBC report allegedly requested to marry one of the BBC reporters who posed as a student seeking academic favours.
In excerpts of the video released on BBC Somalia’s Facebook page, Professor Gyampo persuaded the reporter to meet him at the mall where he was caught on camera making “numerous [alleged] inappropriate demands.”
In the report, he also allegedly requested to kiss the reporter.
The documentary was commissioned in response to allegations of sexual harassment by lecturers that have hovered over tertiary institutions.
