SSNIT: 2,465 staff to have their academic credentials verified after Former IT head “Dr” Caleb Afaglo’s fake certificates revelation.


“Dr” Caleb Afaglo former IT head of SSNIT was interdicted in the $72m software scandal. It was later discovered that his academic credentials  (certificates) for getting the job were fake.


The academic certificates of 2,465 workers of the SSNIT are being verified by the trust as part of moves to cleanse the system of possible fake certificate holders.

The exercise comes against the backdrop of the revelation that the dismissed Head of the Management Information Systems (MIS) of the trust, ‘Dr’ Caleb Afaglo, used fake certificates to gain employment with SSNIT in 2015.




The Director-General of SSNIT, Dr John Ofori-Tenkorang, recently told the Daily Graphic that management gave the directive to the Human Resource Department two weeks ago as part of moves to cleanse the system of possible culprits.

“It is a policy of SSNIT for all certificates to be verified, but, somehow, Afaglo’s slipped through. We, therefore, need to make sure similar incidents do not occur in the future,” he said in an interview in Accra last Thursday.
