A lecturer with the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) Business School Emmanuel Acheampong has claimed a female student offered herself to him.

Concise News reports that the BBC had on Monday published an undercover story detailing sexual harassment of female students by their male lecturers at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the University of Ghana.

While speaking in the wake of the report by the BBC and its team of undercover journalists, the lecturer noted that the female student was a Nigerian.

According to him, the student submitted an empty booklet and included her unclad picture and telephone number in it (booklet) after sitting for his paper.

“When I opened the paper,” he told Ahotor FM, “it was an empty sheet with her Unclad picture and telephone number under it.

“I called her and with my background as a Christian, I counseled her.”

I failed her woefully, Dr. Acheampong said. Acheampong also said he usually gives out questions before the examination to avoid anything of the sort.

“This practice discourages students from coming to you, he said.

The University of Ghana and University of Lagos whose lecturers were indicted in the documentary have suspended the accused.
