The University of Ghana will this week make public a report by the 5-member Committee tasked to investigate claims that two lecturers of the University traded sexual encounters in exchange for academic favours, ABC News can authoritatively report.

The two lecturers who were investigated were Prof. Ransford Yaw Gyampo and Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor.

The report from the Committee, when released, will put an end to some speculations on social media.

Following the disclosure by the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu that he had received the report from the Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee, some media outlets reported that the Committee exonerated the two lecturers.

I can best assure you that this is something we would hear definitely this week, I’m sure, sooner than later, we would know the way forward with this fact finding and the recommendations, she said in an interview

Mrs. Stella Amoah added that although University management was yet to meet to discuss the report, the recommendations will be made available to the public this week.

Management is yet to meet and let us know what the recommendations are. Nothing is out in terms of an official position. Last week was a busy one for us at the University and management will definitely meet on the report and we will let members of the university community and the public know what the recommendations are.

She further urged media outlets to desist from making speculations.

It is no use just debunking, and then to not say what it is, it would be good to have full details, especially when we know that members of the community and the public are all ears to know what the recommendations are.

Management committed to implementing recommendations

Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, in reaffirming the university’s zero-tolerance for sexual harassment, assured that management of the University is committed to cracking the whip on culprits; starting by the implementation of the recommendations of the committee.

“Management will, therefore, study the report and ensure implementation of the recommendations using the appropriate adjudicatory process stipulated under the Basic laws and policies of the University,” he said.
