Celebrities’ Perspectives on Dutch Passport Versus Pursuing a PhD: Insights Shared.


The online community is engaged in a lively discussion about the decision between acquiring a Dutch passport and pursuing a Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) in the modern era. Celebrities have also participated in the social media debate, expressing their preferences regarding a Dutch passport and a PhD to further their academic aspirations.

There are arguments suggesting that in light of the declining state of Ghana’s economy, a Dutch passport holds more appeal than pursuing a Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD).

Ghanaian actor cum politician John Dumelo weighed in on the matter, stating, “There should be no comparison between a PhD and a Dutch passport. They represent different achievements and aspirations.”

Socialite Efia Odo raised doubts about the significance of high academic credentials if they do not lead to success in life. She questioned, “Why are so many PhD holders in Ghana hungry?” during an interaction on X.

During an interview with Starr FM, musician Sister Afia expressed that given the present economic conditions, she would choose a Dutch passport for its benefits.

“Considering the state of the economy, I’d opt for a Dutch passport. It offers free travel, easier job opportunities, and the chance to study at no cost,” she elaborated.

The debate intensified following comments by Prof Kobby Mensah, a lecturer at the University of Ghana Business School, who suggested that a PhD may not be appropriate for individuals in urgent need or actively seeking employment.

“A PhD is not for those who are hungry. It’s not about securing employment, nor is it for entrepreneurship. Understand that!” the lecturer emphasized on X.
