The Bank of Ghana (BoG) has denied reports circulating on social media that 90 percent of recently recruited staff were found to have presented fake certificates.

According to the BoG, the incident being referred to involves two members of staff whose appointments were terminated for providing fake certificates as part of their employment documentation.

“The statement circulating on social media is twisted to misinform the general public. It is not true that 90 percent of recently recruited staff were found to have presented fake certificates,” the central bank said in a statement on Tuesday January 18.

It added “The incident being referred to involves two (2) members of staff whose appointments were terminated for providing fake certificates as part of their employment documentation.


“As part of due diligence processes during and post recruitment, those found to have presented forged documentation (including academic and professional certificates) are either dropped from the recruitment process or their services terminated if already on-boarded and on probation.

“The Bank of Ghana wishes to put on record that dismissals are a regular Human Resources management function for staff whose conduct is unsatisfactory or have committed an offence, as stipulated in the Bank’s handbook on Human Resource Policies.”
