Professor Kofi Agyekum of the Linguistics Department of the University of Ghana, is proposing that two of his colleagues who were captured in the ‘sex for grades’ scandal be given proper counselling in their trying times.
He fears the two learned men, Prof. Ransford Gyampo and Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor could engage in the unthinkable if not properly counseled at these times when they will be appearing before Anti-sexual Harassment Committee set up by the university to investigate them.
“I am praying for courage for Professor Gyampo and Dr Butakor. Where we have gotten to, we need counsellors for them before anything could catastrophe may befall considering their statutes in academia. I am happy they have been interdicted which affords them the opportunity to return to work after the investigations by Anti-sexual Harassment Committee”, he disclosed on Accra-based Peace Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
The Head of European Studies at the University was captured in a BBC Africa Eye documentary dubbed ‘sex for grades’ persuading a BBC reporter to meet him at the mall where he was caught on camera making “numerous inappropriate demands.”
The video saw the randy Professor known to be morally upright and married, begging to kiss his ‘prey’ at the Accra Mall where they met.
Meanwhile, he has threatened a lawsuit against the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) for defaming him.
Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor, a lecturer at the Department of Teacher Education of the School of Education and Leadership on the other hand, was lustfully admiring and trying to woo a supposed prospective applicant to a Master Degree programme in his Department by telling her that his wife if out of the country and therefore would want to have her [applicant] to make him her side guy.
“You look muwaah…how many guys have told you ‘You are beautiful’ today?” he quizzed when the BBC journalist who posed as a final year student of the School of Education and Leadership, University of Ghana approached Dr Butakor and expressed an interest in reading for a Masters Degree after her Bachelor’s Degree.
In the video, he added “Let me be your side boy, side guy…men have side chicks…I will not give you trouble…seriously I will not give you trouble…I will not give you trouble…I will not be a distraction to your life…let me be your side guy…”
