The National Accreditation Board has discredited the honorary doctorate degree conferred on ex-Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah by the Day Spring Christian University of Mississippi.
But the board says the university alongside three others- Pan African Clergy Council and Bible College, Global Centre for Transformational Leadership and the World Council for Evangelical Clergy- is uncertified to honour prominent individuals.
It says some uncertified institutions go ahead to that: “With the intent to legitimize and popularize the operations of the institutions in Ghana, and thereby seek to attract unsuspecting students to enroll in them.”
Appiah was awarded a Doctor of Psychology in Sports after his historic achievement of qualifying the Black Stars to the 2014 FIFA World Cup- the first indigenous Ghanaian coach to achieve that feat.
He was honoured at ceremony in Accra this May at the School of Allied Science campus. This news comes as another blow to the ex-Ghana international who was relieved of his post last Friday.
