The National Accreditation Board (NAB)has said it will not countenance any inappropriate behaviour, which has the tendency to compromise teaching and learning, which ultimately could affect the quality and standard of tertiary education in Ghana.
In a statement signed by the acting Executive Secretary of the National Accreditation Board, Dr. Kingsley Nyarko noted with concern allegations captured in the BBC sex for grades documentary.
Two lecturers of the University of Ghana Prof. Ransford Gyampo and Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor captured in the BBC documentary have already been interdicted.
The NAB’s statement also encouraged students to acquaint themselves with the sexual harassment policy of the various institutions, and gather courage to expose those involved.
The Board noted that as regulator of tertiary education, it is appalled by the potential damage the BBC investigative piece could do to the reputation of University of Ghana. It has subsequently tasked all institutions to protect students, especially the females, by instituting appropriate mechanisms, structures, and strengthen and fully implement their sexual harassment policies.
