A leading member of the New Patriotic Party, Gabby Otchere-Darko, has cautioned against linking good grades for female students to sex.
According to him, he is glad ‘Sex for Grades’, which is a global phenomenon, has become a major issue in Ghana now, a debate which must be welcomed and conducted responsibly.
Reacting to the BBC’s documentary which exposed how some lecturers in West African universities trade ‘sex’ with female students for grades, he urged the discussion on sex for grades must be made a very expensive habit.
“We should not be chauvinistic and stretch it to link good grades for female students to sex; far from the truth,” he said in a tweet.
