Gender Minister slams lecturers implicated in ‘Sex for Grades’ exposé
Ghana’s Minister for Gender, Children and Social protection has criticized the lecturers who were implicated in the ‘Sex For Grades’ documentary by the BBC Africa Eye.
The one-hour documentary captured two Ghanaian lecturers at the University of Ghana in compromising situations with undercover journalists who had posed as “students”.
The two Ghanaian lecturers, Prof. Ransford Gyampo and Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor, have since been interdicted by the University’s management.
Reacting to the ‘Sex for Grades’ documentary at a media encounter, the Gender Minister, Cynthia Morrison said;
“sexual harassment is wrong. A man sees 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, in the office or at home or anywhere it is wrong.”
“If you are interested in a girl, propose to her. If she likes it, she will accept. If she doesn’t like it, she goes away and you go away. You go and look for another one”.
