The National Accreditation Board (NAB) has said that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) does not need accrreditation from the accreditation board to operate.
Speaking in an interview with Citi News monitored by Ghanapoliticsonline.com, the Executive Secretary of NAB, Kwame Dattey, said though the school does not have the NAB’s blessing it will not be necessary if it will not be awarding only certificates.
When somebody needs accreditation the person applies for it but to the best of my knowledge, they haven’t even applied for accreditation. I don’t know what type of school they are running. We deal with tertiary education institutions so if they are not dealing running tertiary education institutions they may not need to apply to us.”
He further explained that they have specific schools they accredit.
“We accredit tertiary education institutions that are going to award maybe diplomas or degrees but if they not going to run such programmes or they are not going to award diplomas or degrees which will be recognized then they don’t need to come to us,” he added.
