Students of Prof. Yaw Gyampo, one of the University of Ghana lecturers who have been implicated in the “sex for grades” investigations carried out by BBC Africa Eye, have launched a defense in support of him.
The campaign has been dubbed #IStandWithGyampo.
The students believe that the Political Science lecturer is innocent of what he is being accused of.
In a video released by the BBC, the outspoken lecturer allegedly requested to marry one of the BBC reporters who posed as a student seeking academic favours.
Also, Prof. Gyampo, who is the Head of European Studies at the University, persuaded the reporter to meet him at the mall where he was caught on camera making “numerous [alleged] inappropriate demands.”
