The Governing Council of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) has refuted two allegations stating that the Rector,
Dr Wilberforce S. Dzisah is ‘Under probe over procurement infractions; and ‘has been asked to proceed on leave.’
A statement signed by Mr Perry K. Ofosu, the Registrar and Secretary to the Council, described the stories as “in correct” saying they did not represent the position of the Council.
It explained: “Rather, Dr Wilberforce Dzisah, …voluntarily notified his management team and the Chairman of the Council of his intention to take part of his annual leave from Wednesday, 27th December , 2017 and to resume duty on Thursday, 1st February, 2018.
“This, is in his view is to allow for a smooth investigation of some concerns raised, including academic integrity and procurement practices.
“It must be noted that, nowhere in the statement setting-up an investigative committee was the rector accused of indulging in procurement infractions or academic dishonesty.”
