The Auditor General had indicted management of Koforidua Technical University for employing lecturer with a fake certificate for 9 years.

Richmond Kweku Frimpong who was engaged in 2006 according to the report rose through the ranks to become a Dean of the faculty of Business and Management drawing a salary amounting to GH¢ 201, 065.92.

Professor Mrs. Smile Dzisi the vice chancellor of the University said the dismissed lecturer who is on the run has been referred to the Economic and Organised Crime (EOCO) for action.

The vice chancellor further told the committee measures had been put in place to curb the occurrence of such problem in the future, and noted that previously the problem was that the institution did not have a thorough check of lecturers who presented their certificate to be employed.

Again a thorough check of certificates presented by lecturers in 2014 exposed the fake certificates, she responded to the committee.
