NANS-Ghana defends Ghana’s higher education amid certificate forgery scandal in neighboring countries

The National Association of Nigerian Students in Ghana (NANS-Ghana) has issued a communique to address the recent development involving the suspension of accreditation and evaluation of certificates from the Benin Republic and Togo by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The communique, signed by the president and the public relations officer of NANS-Ghana, Sam Edem and Damian Obili respectively, stated that the suspension was a result of an investigation by an investigative journalist who exposed some institutions in the two countries for allegedly engaging in certificate racketeering.


The communique also clarified that the update by the National Universities Commission (NUC) of Nigeria, which listed some Ghanaian institutions or their resemblance as unaccredited, was a piece of stale news that dated back to 2016-2018, when some illegal operators in Nigeria were shut down by the NUC for falsely claiming affiliations with institutions in Ghana.


The communique further urged the Nigerian students and stakeholders in Ghana to not panic, spread the fakes, or fall for the misleading information that seeks to undermine the credibility of Ghana’s higher education. It also assured those who may have friends or family studying in Togo or Benin Republic that the ban was temporary and meant to ensure a more credible higher education system for Nigerians internationally.


The communique concluded by thanking the Nigerian students and stakeholders in Ghana for their cooperation and support in the face of the challenges.
