Is Hassan Ayariga's Doctorate Degree Worth The Scroll It Is Typed On?

According to an old wag I know, "Mr. Hassan Ayariga's arrogance, is so typical of many nouveau-riche Ghanaians." Indeed.

In one's humble opinion, he does have a point perhaps - up to a point: many of those boors have absolutely no class at all.

What true gentleman would ever insult any lady publicly - let alone a lady in the high position of Electoral Commissioner of the Republic Ghana?

Thank goodness that a remorseful Mr. Hassan Ayariga, who is the founder and leader of the All People's Congress (APC), redeemed himself in the end, after that particular spat with the Electoral Commission (EC), for disqualifying him from standing as a candidate in the December presidential election - by apologising publicly not too long after he egregiously insulted Mrs. Charlotte Osei in media interviews.

One wonders whether Hassan Ayariga's  boorish disdain for the chairperson of the EC, results from the fact that he probably thinks that having amassed  great wealth, somehow, that makes him a  very special and superior being - and thus entitles him to denigrate those who incur his displeasure.

In that sense, he is in the same bad-behaving, nouveau-riche super-league, as the New Patriotic Party's (NPP) uncouth Kennedy Adjapongs and Bernard Antwi-Boasiakos. Dreadful misogynists, to a man.

Alas, good breeding cannot possibly be purchased - unlike doctorate degrees from dodgy 'tertiary institutions' founded by narcissistic and super-greedy Nigerian mega-Church owners: selling 'degrees' at hefty prices to wealthy  and egoistical Africans in search of respectability.

It is a moot point as to whether or not  a 'doctorate degree' issued by a Niaja-degree-factory in Spain - founded by clever Nigerians to exploit a lucrative niche market pandering to the egos of rich Africans seeking social acceptance  - is indeed a genuine academic institution: merely because it has 'accreditation' from local authorities.

The question there  is:  What do well-respected academics from Spain's leading universities think of 'doctorate degrees' from Achievers International University College Institute of Religious  Studies and Management?

Unfortunately, one doubts very much, whether any of them have ever heard of Mr. Hassan Ayariga's Spanish online alma mater, with its brick-and-mortar "affiliate campus" apparently located in Valencia.

For the benefit of readers, including CID HQ investigators, we are posting two different culled sections from the content on the website of the Achievers International University College Institute of Religious Studies and Management (AIUC).

Mr. Hassan Ayariga may very well have been duped. His doctorate degree may not be worth the  scroll it is typed on, alas.

The aforesaid culled  two sections from the AIUC's website appear in all their glory below. Please read on:

End of the two culled sections from the inimitable website of the AIUC.

Poor Mr Hassan Ayariga. His vanity has led him to buy a worthless piece of paper - just so he can plaster the letters PhD after his name. Definitely not presidential timber, alas. Poor sod.
