Comparing foreign passport to PhD is utter ‘nonsense’ – Prophet Kofi Oduro

Prophet Kofi Oduro, the head pastor of Alabaster International Ministries, has criticized the comparison between acquiring a foreign passport and earning a Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD).

He believes it is irrational for people to argue about the merits of having a foreign passport versus a PhD, especially when others are focused on creating innovative solutions to advance the world.

The pastor contends that such a debate is fundamentally flawed because it has no significance in death and no bearing on one’s salvation.

Addressing his congregation, Prophet Oduro condemned the social media discussions on passports and PhDs as “nonsense.”

“Having a Dutch passport doesn’t mean you no longer need education. This demeans the value of education. While some are researching artificial intelligence and other fields, we are wasting time on trivial debates.

“What importance does an American or British passport really hold? It’s all vanity, and I don’t care about your opinions. When Ebony passed away, she didn’t take her visa-filled passport with her. I’ve lived abroad and know how things work. There are opportunities, but it’s not as easy as it seems,” he exclaimed.

The debate intensified after Prof. Kobby Mensah, a lecturer at the University of Ghana Business School, remarked that a PhD is not suitable for those in urgent need of a job.

“A PhD is not for the hungry. It’s not for securing employment or for entrepreneurship. Understand that!” the lecturer wrote on X.

Various celebrities, including John Dumelo, Sista Afia, Efia Odo, Wayoosi, and Nana Yaa Brefo, have also weighed in on the debate.
