Wayoosi contends that the PhD -Dutch passport comparison is unnecessary since it is obvious which of the two holds more value.

“Enough of this pointless debate, okay? How can you equate a foreign passport with a PhD? Even if you combine a law degree with a PhD, my choice would still be the foreign passport. Don’t overthink this and stress yourself,” he said.

Dutch passport offers a lot of opportunities

In an interview with an employment advocate, Mr Daniel Fenyi said emphasized the benefits an individual enjoys if he or she has a Dutch passport.

He said that although a PHD in Ghana is a worthy academic accomplishment, its benefits do not compare to having a Dutch passport.

"A Dutch passport represents access to good economic opportunities, social security, and a high standard of living. Even though a PhD signifies the pinnacle of academic achievement and intellectual potential, the same cannot be said about a PhD from Ghana."
