The C.K. Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences has terminated the appointment of a Senior Assistant Registrar, Dr. Michael Adusei Boadu, for presenting fake certificates.
The University has also ordered Dr. Boadu to refund the monies paid to him as salary and allowances for the one year he worked with the University.
The decision of the university is contained in a termination letter addressed to Dr. Boadu dated January 9, 2023. It also ordered Dr. Boadu to “stop parading himself as a staff of the University”.
“You are also required to refund all the salaries and allowances you fraudulently drew from the University from December 2021 to December 2022 to the C.K. Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences GCB Bank Account number: 9021130002211.
“The amount you are required to refund is Two hundred and thirty-one thousand, One hundred and Eighty-two Ghana Cedis, Sixty-Four Pesewas (231,182,64.00). You may submit a payment plan to cover the full amount paid to you to the Director of Finance not later than January 15, 2023,” the university’s registrar, Dr. V.A. Ankamah Lomotey, wrote.
The university’s Governing Council, through its Chairman, Professor Gordon A. Awandare, told the Ghana Tertiary Education (GTEC) that Dr. Michael Boadu’s Bachelor of Laws and Master of Public Administration certificates from the University of Ghana were not genuine.
This was in response to a petition to GTEC by one Joseph Weguri, a resident of Navrongo, who said Dr. Boadu was not qualified to be an employee of the University.
“Michael Adusei Boadu was unable to present the certificates until late last year when he presented them to the Vice-Chancellor. Few weeks thereafter, the Appointments and Promotions Board met and invited him to present the certificates in person. It was at this point that suspicions were raised after the examination of the certificates. A request for verification of his LLB and Master of Public Administration certificates from the University of Ghana revealed that the said certificates were fake,” Prof. Gordon A. Awandare told the Commission.
