A businesswoman who had made comments that many interpreted as suggesting that Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana sexually harassed her has said she was misunderstood.
Andrea Pizziconi, the CEO of Africa Integras, has released a statement to say Prof Ebenezer Oduro-Owusu never harassed her.
“Surely, you are aware of the difference of headlines and the article’s substance, the latter of which accurately reflects my previous statement,” Andrea Pizziconi said responded to Prof Oduro-Owusu’s reaction.
Prof Ebenezer Oduro-Owusu vehemently fought off the understanding that Andrea Pizziconi’s comments created – that he sexually harassed the businesswoman.
He told Joy News Thursday that Andrea Pizziconi’s allegations are frivolous.
According to him, Andrea Pizziconi is bitter because he put her contract with the country’s premier university on hold.
“You just have to treat this with the contempt that it deserves…personally, I will describe her as somebody who is bitter and extremely angry,” he said.
Also, speaking on Newsnight on Joy FM, Ms Pizziconi said she only sought to project misogynistic statements the Vice-Chancellor made against her in a previous tweet.
She also accused the media of blowing her earlier comments out of proportion.
