Information available to Today indicate that fake certificates and degrees are flying at the presidency for the appointment of metropolitan, municipal and district chief executive (MMDCE).
Intercepted copies of documents showing details of some of these suspected false credentials from some candidates within the Greater Accra Region for the MMDCE positions have Degree in Technical Surveillance, Basic Instructor Certificate II, Associate Degree in Political Marketing among others.
One of the districts in contention, Today can confirm, is the Kpone Katamanso District in the Greater Accra Region.
Our investigations established that out of four people in the race, one has an Associate Degree in Political Marketing as his highest educational curriculum.
A similar situation was also found in Ashanti, Eastern, Western Regions and few districts in the three Northern Regions.
The source was also of the view that the macho-men style of lobbying was the cause of all these problems, thus causing delays in the appointments of the MMDCEs.
“We were hoping to hear the President mention the names of the MMDCE nominees after the nominations of the ministers and their deputies. Why do you think parliament has finished vetting them but still the President has not done the nominations of the MMDCEs,” the source quizzed?
