Copies of a letter written to one of the embattled lecturers in the ‘Sex for Grades’ scandal at the University of Ghana, Professor Gyampo is in the possession of ABC News.

The letter, which was addressed to Professor Gyampo as part of correspondence to seek his side of the story, was in fulfillment of the ethical requirements of the profession which requires that all sides must be given a fair hearing.

While some have criticised the piece for failing to establish a scenario where a lecturer attempted altering the grades of a student in exchange for sex, others have highly commended it for exposing the worrying development of harassment of female students on university campuses.

The video implicates four respected lecturers from two prestigious universities in West Africa; the University of Ghana and the University of Lagos in Nigeria.

The Political Science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Prof Ransford Gyampo, has since refuted all claims of wrongdoings and threatened to sue the BBC for defamation.

The letter establishes some level of interaction between the BBC and Prof Gyampo ahead of the airing of the exposé, which was released on Monday, October 7.

Find below a copy of the letter, which was written to Prof Gyampo from the BBC on September 24, 2019, notifying him of the exposé.
