The two University of Ghana lecturers caught in the BBC documentary on Sex for Grades, have been found guilty by the committee set up to investigate the scandal.
The lectures - Prof. Ransford Gymapo and Dr Paul Butakor - were found guilty of misconduct and the committee report recommended they appear before the University of Ghana’s Disciplinary committee for further actions.
A statement released by the university’s public affairs directorate stated that the committee found prima facie evidence of breaches of the University’s Code of Conduct and Statutes against the two lecturers.
The Committee, chaired by Justice Vida Akoto-Bamfo noted in its report to the Vice-Chancellor that the two embattled lecturers also breached Statute 42(1)( e )(ii) which states that “no member of the University shall engage in a course of vexatious conduct that is directed at one or more specific individuals, and that is known to be unwelcome.”
The statement signed by the director of public affairs of the University of Ghana, Stella Amoa, also indicated the University of Ghana’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, has accepted the report of the committee and will ensure the recommendations in the report are followed to the latter.
He opined that it is wrong for government to go buying planes when the decision to have a new national airline is yet to be agreed upon.
