SexForGrades scandal: Ghanian lecturer threatens to sue BBC

One of the lecturers mentioned to have allegedly demanded sex in exchange for grades, Professor Ransford Gyampo, a Political Science lecturer at the University of Ghana has threatened to initiate a legal action against the BBC.

In a radio interview with Accra based Citi FM on Monday, Professor Gyampo denied abusing his power to make sexual advances towards students.

He said in the interview, “You’ve also seen the video, have you seen anything called sex for grades [in the video]. How can you engage in so-called sex for grade relationship with somebody who is not a student in the first place…, I didn’t see anything like that [in the video] and I have not done anything like that.”

“You’ve [interviewer] also seen the video, have you seen anything called sex for grades? How can you engage in so-called sex for grade relationship with somebody who is not a student in the first place?

“Well this is a clear case of defamation in the first place and initially in my response to the BBC, I told them that I will leave the matter to God and to their conscience, I will not take them on, because I know, and when they were doing it, they made me know, I know that, they have all the resources under the sun to be able to pay for any defamatory claim, any damages I may demand.

“And I also know that, no amount of monetary compensation will be able to clear the damage that may have been caused, so that was the initial position that I’m not even going to bother them so long as I know that I have not done what they are claiming I have done and their own video evidence does not show that, I will just leave the matter to themselves and also to Ghanaians, he added.
