University of Ghana has invited all past and present students who have reliable evidence of sexual harassment by lecturers to come out and prove as the school’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee begin investigations into the ‘sex for grades’ scandal. The Chairperson of the committee, Dr Margret Ivy Amoakohene, said the investigations will not be limited to lecturers involved in the BBC documentary only.
This is what she had to say to Joy News;
“Come forward if you have evidence to show that during your four years stay on the University of Ghana Campus this happened to you. “The (BBC) documentary is like the first point that we received something to work with.
The next thing is to invite people who think they have been victims in times past or they are currently being victimized to come forward. “We are going to invite persons who have encountered these two lecturers or any others to come forward,” she said on the Joy News program on Tuesday October 8.
Dr. Amoakohene further noted that the University of Ghana wants to also take the opportunity to deal drastically with the canker once and for all. “We really want a congenial atmosphere where learning and teaching can take place without intimidation, without anybody feeling that they are violated”.
