UPSA Vice-Chancellor and Director Fight Over Lesbians

The reported sacking of two female students of the University of Professional Studies (UPSA) for allegedly engaging in sexual orgies that bordered on lesbianism on campus, has drawn a rift between the school’s Vice-Chancellor (VC) Feehi Okoe Amartey and the school’s head of disciplinary committee (BDC). 

Okoe Amartey had issued a quick statement to rubbish an earlier statement issued by the disciplinary committee director in a notice signed by Deputy Director – BDC, Robert Gyekye-Darko, saying the VC was the chief disciplinary officer of the school and that nobody gets to be disciplined unless he authorizes it.

The VC’s November 24, 2021 statement was issued to debunk an earlier notice issued by the disciplinary committee director of the school, where he said the unnamed students had been expelled for engaging in a threesome and also lesbian contrary to the school’s rules during the 2020/2021 academic year.

“During the 2nd batch of the 2020/2021 Academic year, 2nd Semester Hostel stay, two female resident students and one male nonresident student engaged in a threesome sexual activity. The two female students also engaged in sexual activity where they fondled each other in acts described as lesbianism.”

“Engaging in acts of lesbianism is contrary to Section 1.28.11 (g) of the Student Handbook of the University of Professional Studies, Accra; 2018 and schedule G 8.3 (23) of the Statute of the University. They have since been dismissed from UPSA Hostel awaiting further sanctions from Management,” the statement said.

However, the VC statement directly countered the earlier notice of dismissal. 

In the counter-statement signed by the Registrar Dr. Koryoe Anim-Wright, on behalf of the VC said: “The Vice-Chancellor of UPSA is the Chief Disciplinary Officer and all decisions taken by the Vice-Chancellor are communicated through the Registrar. Any disciplinary communication that does not follow the above procedure is not authorized by Management and should therefore be disregarded.

“…No disciplinary report on the alleged incident is before Management for a final decision,” the statement read.

This confusion in the chain of command at the UPSA has triggered speculations that the VC may have been influenced to overturn the expulsion due to an alleged influence on him by the powerful Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) lobby groups that have been fingered for pumping cash to influence key policymakers in the country to liberalise Ghana for LGBTQ activities.
