Veteran Ghanaian broadcaster, Oheneyere Gifty Anti, has joined the ongoing discussion on the recent expose by BBC Africa dubbed S3x For Grades, which highlights on sexual harassment at top universities in West Africa.
The expose has taken many by surprise as it captured some respected and high-profiled professors of both University of Lagos, and University of Ghana, Legon.
Reacting to reports and the expose itself, Oheneyere Gifty Anti revealed though some men are at fault, women are not angels either.
She further stated, shockingly, that some female lecturers demand sex to award grades to male students.
She concluded by saying the power given to teachers and lecturers to determine the destiny of our young ones is the cause of all these scandals.

A CALL FOR CURE NOW
By Oheneyere Gifty Anti.
In fact we have long gone pass the period of Naming and Shaming.
And I am glad, some are boldly doing it now.
Sex for Grades in Tertiary institutions and you are shocked? Are you kidding me?
My dear, it is happening in primary, JHS and SHS. It started long ago and when we talked about it we were told we are ‘demonizing’ teachers and lecturers.
Listen, there are very good teachers/lecturers and I have male and female tutors who give me information all the time, about what is going on.
I am tempted to post the recent one about some teachers in a school in the Brong/Ahafo area who actually ‘share’ the Primary 6 girls before they get to JHS 1. So by the time they get there, the teachers know ‘who belongs to who’. Such nonsense. Such evil.
And oh by the way, it’s not only male teachers who demand sex for grades. Some female teachers do same. And the victims of such demonic people in authority are both male and female.
So yes, some male and female teachers and lecturers and ‘bosses’ are demanding sex from both male and females.
We are in trouble, because we have given too much power to teachers and lecturers to determine the destiny of our young ones.
We base potential success in life on what grades you get while in school. So some of these tutors hold our young ones hostage.
Our country is sick and we need to find a cure, RIGHT NOW.
