We’ve no certificates 2 years after school – Kintampo College of Health grads
Two years after completing school, some students who graduated from the Kintampo College of Health say they still have not received their certificates.
The graduates, numbering over 500, studied BSc Community Medicine and Health.
According to them, all efforts to get their certificates from the College has been futile.
The spokesperson for the aggrieved students, Alhassan Abdul Rashid said on Friday, 14 June 2019 that: “The BSc certificate is what is in a limbo now. We don’t have that one and we have even gone to court where the Minister of Health said we should withdraw and do an out-of-court settlement so that he will come in so that NAB, that’s the National Accreditation Board, gives the school accreditation – they’ll come and look at our infrastructure, look at everything and certify the school that now they’re certified to run some courses, particularly ours”.
“Now, the issue is that we want our certificates because when the minister asked us to do an out-of-court settlement, we thought that as students and as responsible students, we should listen to our father and the Minister of Health to do justice, and unfortunately, several deadlines have been given us … all to no avail. He hasn’t heeded his promises that he’ll get us our certificates,” he told Accra-based Citi FM.
Mr Rashid also disclosed that their certificates had been withheld by the University of Cape Coast because, according to the school, the Kintampo College of Health has no accreditation to run a course which was supposed to have been affiliated to the university.
“UCC is supposed to give us certificates, of course, because the course was affiliated to UCC. UCC, too, is saying that unless the school gets their accreditation, they will not get us our certificates.”
