A lecturer at the Accra Technical University, Dr Jones Ntiamoah, has said lecturers trading academic grades for sex is an age-old problem.

He noted that the phenomenon has been in most tertiary institutions, thus, people should not play the ostrich after a BBC documentary.

Some lecturers from the University of Ghana and the University of Lagos have been caught up in the ‘Sex for Grades’ investigations carried out by BBC Africa Eye.

But, Dr Ntiamoah on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem, Tuesday said both the lecturers and students are to blame.

He said most of the female students deliberately dress provocatively to entice innocent lecturers for grades.

“Our job is very difficult because the temptation is more but some of us have resisted by the grace of God,” he added.

Dr Ntiamoah said the lecturers have no moral right to prey on the young women just because of how they dress.

Sex for grades, he stressed, is as old as Adam, however, the BBC documentary should serve as a wake-up call to lecturers engaged in such an act.
