Mr Musah, made this revelation to Colleges of Education Weekly Journal indicating that a curriculum should be designed to allow for the one-year top-up to award degree to diploma holders. This was made known with the statement below:

RECOMMENDED:  One Year Top Up Degree Academic Calendar And Reopening Date

 

“Therefore, while some people are now studying to gain degrees, let the diploma holders start doing the one-year top-up. A curriculum should be designed to allow for the one-year top-up leading to the award of a degree. So that by the time their juniors come out, they will not be disadvantaged. We need to ensure equity and fairness. I am hoping and believing that GNAT and TTAG together, will push this issue to its fruition” .

And instead of helping those with Cert ‘A’ get their Diploma, they were delayed until they became juniors to those who were doing the Diploma. He further stated that  this time, there was the need to avoid that kind of situation again from arising. This was made known with the statement below:

And instead of helping those with Cert ‘A’ get their Diploma, we delayed until they became juniors to those who were doing the Diploma. This time, we are saying that we need to avoid that kind of situation again from arising.”
