Management of the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) led by Dr Addo Kuffour has today August 30, 2017, during a meeting, relieved interdicted IT boss of the Trust Caleb Afaglo of his position with immediate effect.
A statement from the board said information provided to them by EOCO indicated that the IT boss has presented fake certificates for his position which has necessitated the decision to sack him from his post.
Caleb Afaglo was interdicted by the anti-graft body for presenting fake documents for his position as head of the IT department at SSNIT.
According to the agency, its investigation reveals that Dr Afaglo did not have a doctorate degree as he claimed. He neither has a masters’ degree or a first degree.
EOCO interdicted Mr. Afaglo over claims that his certificates are fake and therefore he does not deserve his position at SSNIT.
But Caleb Afaglo has defended his certificate saying: “This is not my first job, so there is absolutely no truth in it, none whatsoever. My PhD. University closed down in 2011, how is that my fault. And how does that make the degree a fake one when I graduated in 2007.”
The statement from the board said the Trust will collaborate with EOCO to deal with anybody who breaches the laws of the land. The names of anyone associated with the Software contract is also expected to be released to the public, as investigations continue into the matter.
In conclusion, the board added that the findings of PricewaterhouseCoopers will be published as promised.
