Professor Gyampo exposed in BBC’s ‘Sex for Grades’ exposé
A popular lecturer at the Political Science department of the University of Ghana, Prof Ransford Gyampo has been caught up in the “sex for grades” investigations carried out by BBC Africa Eye.
In a short video released ahead of the main documentary, the lecturer is seen requesting 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 inappropriate demands.”
The documentary was commissioned in response to allegations of sexual harassment by lecturers that have hovered over tertiary institutions.
The bulk of the excerpt released spent time in the University of Lagos and one of its lecturers alleged attempts to proposition a student seeking admission into the school.
He has however denied the claims.
“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.
