The Technical University Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG) says BBC’s ‘Sex for Grade’ documentary should not be limited to just the University of Ghana (UG).
President of the Association, Solomon Keelson, believes such sexual harassment cases are issues of morality and a national issue and should be dealt with to the core rather than limiting it to just universities.
“Issues of such cases are issues of morality but we always want to limit it to just universities. Trust me, these issues happen in churches and even in employment,” he told Accra based Neat FM, monitored by Adomonline.com.
His comments follow an undercover report released by the BBC which portrayed alleged incidents of sexual harassment by lecturers from the University of Ghana and the University of Lagos in Nigeria.
Two lecturers of the University of Ghana, a Political Science lecturer, Prof. Ransford Gyampo and a lecturer at the College of Education, Dr Paul Kwame Bukator were indicted in the ‘Sex for Grades’ exposé.
But, Mr Keelson wants the discussion to be widened because it is a general problem which is affecting some institutions in the country.
