Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko who is a cousin to President Akufo-Addo and known to have insider knowledge of happenings in the current government, has reacted to allegations by embattled Professor, Ransford Edward Gyampo of the University of Ghana, urging him to desist from making preposterous remarks that the BBC Africa Eye exposé is an attempt by some Ghanaians to gag him.
The BBC Africa Eye documentary captioned “sex for grades” implicated Prof Gyampo in alleged acts of sexual misconduct. But he had reacted that the documentary was an orchestrated attempts by those he is critical of to silence him.
But the confidante of President Akufo-Addo and high-ranking member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has advised him to zip up his trousers instead.
“I wish Prof Gyampo well in defending his reputation and will defend his right to do so. But, he must not link his issue with BBC on this “Sex for Grades” allegation to any ludicrous attempt to ‘zip’ his lips from criticizing Govt. He should not confuse us with where his zip is…”, he stressed on Social media.
Meanwhile the chairperson of the Anti-Sexual Harassment committee of the University of Ghana (UG), Dr. Margaret Amoakohene has refuted “sex for grades” allegations made against two lecturers of the institution cited in the BBC Africa Eye documentary, saying that there is no evidence that shows that they had sex with the students to give them better grades.
Two of the university’s prominent lecturers, a Political Science lecturer, Prof. Ransford Gyampo and a lecturer at the College of Education, Dr. Paul Kwame Bukator have been implicated in the ‘Sex for Grades’ exposé.
