The Economic and Organized Crimes Office (EOCO) as part of its investigation into a software brouhaha which is believed to have caused the state some $72 million has interdicted Dr. Caleb Afaglo for using fake academic qualifications.
According to EOCO, Dr. Caleb Afaglo did not possess a genuine degree, master’s degree and a doctorate degree which he presented when he applied for the top position.
Dr. Caleb Afaglo has been employed as the Head of IT at the Trust from 2015. Investigations into his employment history revealed that he was selected for the post because of his ‘impeccable’ qualifications which have been found out recently to be fake.
He was employed in 2015 after two phases of the Operational Business Suite (OBS) had been implemented.
The Economic and Organized Crimes Office (EOCO) made this revelation when they launched investigations into the possible role played by the Head of IT of the Trust in the $72 million faulty software scandal.
EOCO however gathered that the Head of IT was a past employee of GLICO Insurance, Sinlet and Dominion University as head of IT department.
It has also purported that he had been fired from all three firms he worked with earlier. Some sources indicated that in Dominion University’s case, Dr. Caleb Afaglo’s fake documents were found out when the school applied to be given accreditation from the National Accreditation Board leading to his sack.
The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) has been in the news after it came to light that a contract for a management software signed between 2012 and 2015 had ballooned from $34 million to $72 million. It turned out that the software was faulty upon delivery.
