Prominent lecturer at the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana, Prof Ransford Gyampo is set to appear before an in-house inquiry committee looking into allegations of sexual harassment against him and one other, Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor.

The University’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee hearing following the BBC Africa Eye’s “sex for grades” exposé is likely to begin from today, October, 09, 2019.

The Public Affairs Director of the University, Stella Amoah told Kasapa 102.5 Fm that the matter has to go through due process to establish a case of sexual harassment against the two.

“We know that this is urgent and so they’ll start work almost right away. I do not know how long this will last but it’s our hope and I think also the hope of the public that this would be handled or undertaken expeditiously…”

One of the school’s statutory committee which is the Business and Executive Committee referred the matter to the Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee for further investigations to be carried out after his interdiction on Tuesday.

My Interdiction is fair

Prof. Gyampo says his interdiction by the University of Ghana over the BBC’s sex for grades investigative piece is fair.

According to the political science lecturer, he respects the decision of the university and will submit to the investigation by the university into the content of the video which has gone viral.

“…I’ve no qualms with the decision that has been taken, if someone is going to investigate you and says step aside I think it makes sense. You cannot be around while investigations are going on and so I accept it and I’ll submit myself to the processes,” he told Kasapa News.
