Student offered me ‘sex for grade’ – Lecturer recounts

In the wake of ‘sex for grades’ expose in West African universities by the BBC Africa Eye, many are coming out with their experience irrespective of gender.

A senior lecturer at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) Business School, Dr. Emmanuel Acheampong is the latest to share his experience.

Speaking on Ahotor FM monitored by DailyNewsGhana.com, he disclosed that some time ago, a female student in one of the universities in the country, “not at GIMPA” where he is “a part-time lecturer” offered him sex for grades.

“She was a Nigerian student,” he indicated.

According to Dr. Acheampong, the student had included “her naked picture and telephone number” in her answer booklet after writing his paper.

“When I opened the paper, it was an empty sheet with her naked picture and telephone number under it. I called her and with my background as a Christian, I counselled her,” he revealed.

I failed her woefully, Dr. Acheampong indicated.

According to him, because these things happen in most of the universities, he usually gives out questions before the exam to avoid anything of the sort. This practice discourages students from coming to you, he said.
