A student of the Ejisuman Senior High School (SHS) in the Ashanti Region has disclosed that she and her school mates mostly engage in sexual bouts with their teachers in order to pay their fees.
According to the student whose name is withheld, majority of the female students are faced with financial constraints hence the teachers and the Assistant head prey on them.
Making the damning revelation on Abusua Nkommo hosted by Kwame Adinkra, she explained that the teachers have been feasting on them sexually on daily basis.
She indicated that the teachers threaten to sack or fail them during exams if they refuse to satisfy their sexual pleasure saying they always succumb to their (teachers) pressures.
The distressed student stated that some of the teachers after satisfying themselves fail to fulfil their part of the bargain citing her case where the teacher failed to give her the money after the sex.
She indicated that she was advised by her mates to report the case to the District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area but refused, fearing that she might be prevented from writing the upcoming 2018 WASSCE.
The Ejisu SHS third year student added that the teacher later requested to sleep with her again before he will give her the GH₵100 for her school fees arrears but she objected to his demand.
She said she suffered depression when the teacher failed to give her the money adding that some of the students enjoy the sex they have with the teachers due to the goodies that follow.
She intimated that she was lucky not to have gotten pregnant but some of her mates are out of school due to unwanted pregnancies.
‘Some of the girls agree to the pressures of the teachers just to pay their fees. In my quest to pay my fees arrears, I once slept with one of the teachers when the school’s authorities threatened to sack those of us owing from classrooms, because I had no one to pay my school fees, I agreed to have sex with him when he approached me with the request. He further threatened to ensure that I’m sack if I reveal the details of our sexual affair to anyone,’ she explained.
She further revealed that the teachers sometimes seize their phones, shoes, slippers and threaten to return them after sleeping with the girls, saying they are now living in total fear.
She called on the Ghana Education Service (GES) to investigate the matter and transfer the ‘bad’ teachers from the school.
‘Some of the teachers are not committed to the teaching, we planned to stage a demonstration to disclose the evil acts of the teachers but we will suffer the consequence thereof,’ she bemoaned.
She said some of the boys are punished if found of being in relationship with some of the girls, admitting that there are some genuine teachers in the school.
