Prof. Ransford Gyampo and Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor, who both lectured at the University of Ghana (UG), and accused of sex for grades, have been cleared of any sexual misconduct.
This is coming after the university’s investigations came to an end.
Both men were accused of sexual misconduct after the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) documentary that was aired in October 2019.
According to the fact-finding committee that conducted the investigation: “The committee finds that on the totality of the evidence before it, there is a huge variance between the import of the title: ‘Sex for grades’, and the content of the actual secret video recording of the affected lecturers of the University of Ghana.
“The committee notes that neither the documentary nor the BBC has provided any evidence to demonstrate that the affected lecturers demanded sex in exchange for grades, as asserted by the title of the documentary: ‘Sex for grades’.”
