General Secretary of the People’s National Convention, Atik Mohammed has said the BBC Africa Eye’s documentary on sexual exploitation in West African universities is below standard.

He said the hype that characterised the premiering of the exposé gave an impression that finally the sex predators were going to be exposed but it turned out to be pedestrian.

“The title of the documentary was ‘Sex for Grade’ but after watching, there is nothing to that effect,” he said on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem programme, Tuesday.

Two lecturers of the University of Ghana, a Political Science lecturer, Prof. Ransford Gyampo and a lecturer at the College of Education, Dr Paul Kwame Bukator were indicted in the ‘Sex for Grades’ exposé.
