UCC Police Nab Man Over Fake Certificates

The Cape Coast University Police have arrested one Dr Sam, the proprietor of a Takoradi-based non-governmental organisation (NGO) known as Ash to Gold, for allegedly swapping the results of students who excelled in the West Africa Senior High School Certificate Examination with those who performed poorly, for a fee, to enable them gain admission into the universities.

Reports reaching The Finder indicate that the modus operandi of Dr Sam was to advertise in the national dailies inviting candidates who clocked between aggregate 6 and 14 in the West Africa Senior High School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) to apply to his outfit for scholarship.

Upon receipt of the applications and the accompanying documentations, Dr Sam is alleged to have swapped the results of the successful applicants with those who performed poorly in the said exams for a fee, ranging between GH¢6,000 and GH¢8,000 per student.
Luck, however, run out for Dr Sam as he was picked up by the police following a tip-off.

Confirming the story in an interview, the Deputy Registrar for the University of Cape Coast, Mr Jeff Onyame, said all students who gained admission through the forged documents of Dr Sam have been immediately withdrawn by the university authorities.
