Accreditation Board confirms legal status of Meridian Pre-University

The National Accreditation Board (NAB) on Friday confirmed the legal status of Meridian Pre-University as dully registered and accredited to run pre-tertiary education in Ghana.

A statement signed by Mr Kwame Dattey, Executive Secretary, and copied to the Ghana News Agency stated: “We wish to indicate that we have verified the status of Meridian Pre-University and hereby confirm that it has been dully registered by the Ghana Education Service, the body responsible for pre-tertiary education in Ghana.

“We regret any inconveniences the publication in the Thursday, January 27, 2011 edition of the Ghanaian Times attributed to NAB, which tagged all pre-universities in the country as illegal.”

The GES Inspectorate Division approved the authorization of Meridian Pre-University with the registration number GES/GAR/PT/BC.04/2008 to run the Diploma in Business Studies programmes.

In an interview with Ghana News Agency on the confirmation of the legal status of Meridian Pre-University, Mr Tetteh Nettey, President of the Institute said, “We have been vindicated and our image which was dented by the fear and panic publication belongs to history.”

Mr Nettey reiterated a call on officials in the education sector to be circumspect in their pronouncements, especially for publications that had the tendency to embarrass investors, staff, students, parents and thereby create a bad image for law abiding institutions like Meridian Pre-University and the country.
