Has Prof Gyampo been silenced by 'sex for grades' exposé?

Political scientist Professor Ransford Edward Gyampo who was very vocal on national issues seems to have gone dead silent after the “sex for grades” undercover investigations by the BBC’s Africa Eye team.

Considering the many things happening in the political arena, especially with regards to the termination of the concessionaire agreement with the Power Distribution Services (PDS) Ghana Limited, the Professor’s views would likely have made news now.

It would be recalled that two Senior Lecturers of the University of Ghana, Prof. Ransford Gyampo and Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor were captured in the infamous exposé.

The Head of European Studies at the University was captured 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…”

Both have since been interdicted pending investigations currently ongoing by the Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee.
