The management of the C.K Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences on the advice of the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC) has relieved Dr. Michael Adusei Boadu as Senior Assistant Registrar of the University.
The Technology and Applied Sciences University in a termination letter dated January 9, 2023, and sighted by AcademicWeek.com has asked the former Assistant Registrar to “stop parading himself as a staff of the University”.
“The Governing Council of C. K. Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences (CKT-UTAS), Navrongo, Ghana, wishes to inform the general public and international community that Mr Michael Adusei Boadu otherwise known as Dr Michael Adusei Boadu is no longer a staff of the university.
He is therefore not authorised to transact any business for and on behalf of the university. Anyone who transacts any business with him does so at his or her own risk,” the Navrongo-based University said in a blog post on its website.
Aside from the dismissal, C.K Tedam University has requested Dr Michael Adusei Boadu to refund all salaries and allowances paid to him from December 2021 to December 2022 to GCB Bank Account number: 9021130002211.
“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 letter said.
According to the Science University, the dismissed Senior Assistant Registrar, Dr Boadu is required to refund Two hundred and thirty-one thousand, One hundred and Eighty-two Ghana Cedis, Sixty-Four Pesewas (231,182,64.00).
“The amount you are required to refund is GHC231,182,64.00. You may submit a payment plan to cover the full amount paid to you to the Director of Finance” the university’s Registrar, Dr V.A. Ankamah Lomotey, said in the letter.
Mr Boadu’s dismissal comes after the university’s Governing Council told the Ghana Tertiary Education (GTEC) his Bachelor of Laws and Master of Public Administration certificates from the University of Ghana were not genuine.
“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,” C.K Tedam University’s Governing Council member told the Commission.
In a related development, the Vice-Chancellor and the Registrar of C.K Tedam University of Technology and Applied Sciences have been dragged to court over their appointments, stating that they are “over-aged by a concerned individual.
Joseph Weguri, a resident of Navrongo who said Dr. Boadu was not qualified to be an employee of the University has accused the Vice-Chancellor and Registrar of the fraudulent activity of the sacked Senior Assistant Registrar.
He is of the view that the failure of the two officials of the C.K Technology University to inspect the academic credentials of Dr Michael Boadu until over GHS 200,000 was paid to him shows that both are “incompetent.”
