Investigation .... 22 UPSA final year students involved in result fraud (buying of results).BNI Investigation is still under way . Joy news report .


A grades manipulation scheme at
the University of Professional
Studies, Accra (UPSA) formerly
Institute of Professional Studies
(IPS) has been uncovered.
Documents available to Joy News
reveal, 22 final year students of the
school - who were supposed to
graduate last year - had thier
grades manipulated.
Ten out of the 22 have already
confessed to partaking in the
malpractice.
The students reportedly paid
various sums of money ranging
from ₵1,500 to ₵4,000 to have their
poor exam grades changed.
Joy News’ Kwetey Nartey followed
the development and reports that
the exam fraud was first detected
by the Academic Affairs Director of
the university.
He became suspicious of the
grades of one of the average
students in his class when he
requested for a transcript.
The Academic Affairs Director
reported the development to
management and a was committee
set to investigate the development.
An external auditor was
subsequently contracted to
investigate the fraud.
The investigations conducted by
the AKK Risk Management Consult
into the scandal, fingered Deputy
Director of the ITSD, Paul Danquah
in the fraud.
His password was apparently used
to manipulate the grades.
Further investigations by the BNI
into the scandal point to the
involvement of a director of one of
the departments, Edwin Ayernor.
A report released after the probe
indicated that phone records of
Edwin Ayernor showed that his
services were solicited for the
grade change.
Mr Ayernor however denies
knowledge.
“The BNI took my computer,
documents and my phone. They
have returned all these items to me
so the question is if the BNI found
something incriminating me on the
phone why will they return it to
me,” he said.
Counsel for the university,
Fortunate Fio told Kwetey
investigations are still ongoing and
the culprits will be duly punished.
He said the grades of the 22
students have been reversed.
“I can safely say that our students.
They were supposed to have
graduated last year and most of
them had papers to right so the
grade change actually occurred in
relation to those papers and we
have reversed them.”
Former President of the Student
Representative Council, Sam Chris
Obodai wants those complicit
dismissed.
He said a reversal of the grades is
not enough adding, “we are in a
society where people deliberately
do wrong things and even the bible
says when you commit a sin
deliberately, that is when you face
the consequences.”
