The Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Mamele Morrison has condemned the recent sex for grade scandal that hit two lecturers of the University of Ghana.
She stated that it is wrong for anybody to engage in act of sexual harassment and therefore says it should not be entertained.
The Minister was speaking at the Meet the Press series of the Information Ministry in Accra.
While condemning the action of the two Ghanaian lecturers who were featured in the ‘Sex For Grades’ documentary which was aired by BBC Africa Eye on Monday, October 7, 2019, Mrs. Morrison averred that “we all know that it is not a good thing for both boys and girls. It is wrong. Not only in the universities, everywhere….a man shakes you and scratches your hand, what does that mean?, he sees you and hits your butt, what does that mean, we cannot do that to men when we meet them so everywhere it happens whether in the classroom, office, at home or anywhere it is wrong.”
The BBC African Eye in their latest expose on ‘Sex For Grades’ fingered two lecturers of the University of Ghana engaged in that act in which the school has suspended the two lecturers.
But reacting to this expose, Madam Morrison stressed that, that act gives a bad image to the country and so, therefore, must not continue to bring sanity.
She also said, this act is a general issue that happens across all walks of works and it goes against the country’s laws.
