Today, political scientist, Professor Ransford Gyampo, is gaining media attention for all the wrong reasons.
He is implicated in the BBC Africa Eye investigative piece into the menace of sex for grades that is reportedly rift in West African public universities.
For this BBC report, the focus was on Ghana and Nigeria.
Two Ghanaian lecturers Dr Ransford Gyampo and Dr Paul Butakor were accused in the documentary.
Dr Gyampo has come out to deny the allegations and he has threatened to sue BBC for defamation.
As a well-known media commentator on national issues, Dr Gyampo is one of many who granted media interviews when Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Number 12 documentary that showed former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi allegedly taking a bribe from a supposed wealthy foreign investor.
Back in June 2018, Dr Gyampo, who was secretly filmed allegedly offering to marry an undercover reporter, said Kwesi Nyantakyi, appeared cheap and got carried away by the largesse the “investors” offered in Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ documentary.
“It is a sad day for Ghana. Watching the video, it clearly showed that some of the officials were desperate to use their office to influence the game by taking inducements, but frankly speaking others were also entrapped,” Professor Gyampo is reported to have said in an interview to journalists shortly after the first screening of Anas’ documentary at the Accra International Conference Center according to Asempa News.
Dr Gyampo also reportedly questioned the methodology that was used by the Tiger Eye PI and the BBC in gathering evidence against the supposed corrupt football administrators.

The methodology the BBC Africa Eye expose used is similar to what Anas and his Tiger Eye PI also used in their BBC supported Number 12 documentary.
