Professor Ransford Van Gyampo is the newly appointed head of the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA). He is to replace Ms Jean Mensa who is on her way to being the new head of Ghana's Electoral Commission (EC).

Until now, Prof. Gyampo was a senior lecturer in the Political Science Department at the University of Ghana (UG). And so it was a big deal when one Facebook user alleged via the social media platform that Prof. Gyampo deals in a scheme he awards grades for having his way with girls.

According to the Facebook user, who the report on mynewgh.com identifies as Ben Kwaku Andrew, the lecturer dealt in awarding grades via indecent favours.

He said, as reported by mynewsgh.com: “I had criticized a political party and they felt putting sexual allegations on me was a way of shutting me up.”

Prof Gyampo went on to say that his students have and will always have their results untouched by exchange of favours, even if they are his relatives.
