“I agree that the lecturers misbehaved and so you will discuss these as unacceptable behaviours that should be investigated but there was no indication of sex for grades .” Ghana SexForGrades UniversityOf Ghana Nigeria
The University of Ghana has said there is no evidence that two of its lecturers captured in a BBC documentary were demanding sex in exchange for grades from female students.
Amoakohene argued that the scenes of the documentary contradict the subject of lecturers demanding sex from female students in exchange for academic grades.

You are busy talking about Ghana and yet you can't carry out further investigations about UniLag SexForGrades documentary to determine if it was really true and not make and believe story. The testimony of the victims would be the evidence they need. A group of random, victimized girls from different backgrounds won't just gang up to ruin a lecturer's career now would they.
