Professor Ransford Yaw Gyampo and Dr Paul Butakor who were both caught in BBC Africa Eye’s documentary on sex for grades have reacted to the sanctions slapped on them.
The two lecturers from Ghana’s premier university were both slapped with a six-month and four-month suspensions respectively.
According to a 3news reports, in a quick response to the charges, their lawyers, F-X Law and Associates, the two lecturers said though they accept the decision, the statement by the University of Ghana communicating it “creates a lot of doubts in the minds of people”.
“It is disappointing that the BBC showed gross disrespect to our Clients and the University by refusing to make themselves available to be cross-examined in the whole process thereby undermining the integrity of the entire administrative proceedings.
It is also unfortunate, that the University’s release did not make it clear that the allegations of BBC were false and had no basis,” the response issued by lead counsel Francis-Xavier Sosu said.
The punishment which was expected to take effect from January 1, 2020, recommended that an annual assessment for 5 years in be carried out in that regard.
They, however, gave word of accepting and respecting the decision and would not pursue it any further in court.
