The National Accreditations Board (NAB) is currently on a mission to clamp down institutions whose rights to award honorary doctorate degrees are questionable.
The Board said most of the institutions awarding honorary degrees to individuals in the country are unaccredited institutions.
In a statement, NAB said although some of the institutions are duly accredited, not all are qualified to award degrees.
“The NAB by this statement is advising all foreign tertiary education institutions with the intent to confer any academic awards on personalities in Ghana to seek its initial approval,” a statement signed by the Executive Secretary of the NAB, Dr Kingsley Nyarko, read.
“Further, we wish to reiterate our resolve and commitment to work with the security agencies and all stakeholders to put a stop to these embarrassing and worrying activities by these unscrupulous groups, which cast a slur or disdain on our international reputation.”
The Accreditations Board further listed 12 educational institutions that are either unaccredited or unqualified to award degrees on their own.
Below are the institutions listed by NAB:
1. Rescue Mission Theological University
2. Day Spring Christian University of Mississippi
3. Pan African Clergy Council and Bible College
4. Global Centre for Transformational Leadership
