The Bank of Ghana (BoG) has confirmed the dismissal of two employees who presented “fake certificates” to gain employment at the central bank.
BoG said reports suggesting that 90 percent of recently recruited staff were found to have presented fake certificates was “not true.”
It said, “the statement circulating on social media is twisted to misinform the general public. It is not true that 90 percent of recently recruited staff were found to have presented fake certificates.”
Rather, “the incident being referred to involves two (2) members of staff whose appointments were terminated for providing fake certificates as part of their employment documentation.”
“As part of due diligence processes during and post recruitment, those found to have presented forged documentation (including academic and professional certificates) are either dropped from the recruitment process or their services terminated if already on-boarded and on probation.
