The past few days, there has been a commotion on social media in regards to Gospel musician, Dr Sonnie Badu’s degrees which he flaunted on social media in appreciation to God.
Apparently, Ghanaians on social media drew conclusions that he earned all the degrees in a period of 4 months so that can never be possible.
Sonnie Badu tried as much as he could to explain to Ghanaians that their conclusion was wrong but clearly, the misunderstanding ensued making netizens to mock him on social media.
Well, Trinity International University of Ambassadors (TIUA), the University from which he earned this certificates have finally spoken.
They denied awarding a Degree to renowned UK-based musician in a four-month period as widely publicised.
“…no student can obtain any major degrees including a PhD in four months, said TIUA on Friday.
TIUA in its Press Statement issued by the Legal Department stated: “Our institution prides itself in the quality of education tailored for each of our students i.e. including their extensive body of work in ministry.”
The University further noted: “TIUA makes no claims, implied or otherwise, that our educational programs, courses, or curricula are the same as offered by secular state colleges and universities. TIUA is not affiliated with the U.S. Department of Education. Credits and Degrees earned at TIUA are for those in Christian service.
It added:”Therefore, any degree that has been earned by our students (Including Dr. Sonnie Badu), are in alignment with the State of Georgia religious exemption authority to receive degrees from associates to doctoral degrees.”
