The Founder and Leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), Mr. Percival Kofi Akpaloo, has said the University Of Ghana should sue broadcasting giant BBC if the institution believes the undercover investigation conducted by the BBC was wrong.
According to him, the university should take legal action against the media house if they think the media house is finding a deliberate way of embarrassing the noble institution.
However, Mr. Akpaloo sees nothing wrong with the work of the BBC and has praised them for exposing the rot at the various Tertiary institutions at the West African sub-region.
” I see nothing wrong with the investigations BBC did, if the University Of Ghana thinks the investigations by BBC was wrong they can take legal action against them and seek for justice as well,” Kofi Akpaloo exclusively told Lawyer Ohene Djan on Pae Mu Ka on Accra based Kingdom FM 107.7.
Background Academic institutions in West Africa have increasingly been facing allegations of sexual harassment by lecturers. This type of abuse is said to be endemic, but it’s almost never proven.
After gathering dozens of testimonies, BBC Africa Eye sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana.
In the video, a lecturer at the College Of Education, Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor, was seen to be having an allegedly inappropriate conversation with a reporter who posed as a Postgraduate student.
A political science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Professor Ransford Edward Gyampo has been caught up in the “sex for grades” investigations carried out by BBC Africa Eye.
Ransford Gyampo has stated that he will initiate legal action against the BBC over its “Sex for grades” documentary.
On Tuesday (08/10/19), the University of Ghana (UG) following the BBC’s “Sex for Grades” documentary interdicted Professor Ransford Gyampo and Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor.
