“If the ladies did not present themselves by seeking for favours, the lecturers would not have made advances on them.” She admonished, “There is nothing like a free launch.”

“Prof Gyampo and Butakor did not just get up to propose to those ladies. We should advise the ladies as well because we see people on the internet threatening to come after people’s husbands, which is wrong”, she explained.

“Some students have the notion that ‘use what you have to get what you want’,” the MP said, noting that young ladies are playing it out in the various universities.

Advice to men

The Deputy Minister advised men, especially young men, to desist from such acts because it could ruin their lives.

Madam Prempeh noted that some people feel shy to report such things but the Ministry has made provisions for that to encourage victims to report and get redress.

Victims are entreated to call these toll-free lines 0800800800 and 0800900900 for support.
