You basically have two options. First, you can attempt to make contact with the Ministry in Ghana personally to verify the document, alternatively, you can appoint an attorney of your own, who practices in Ghana and get the attorney to visit the ministry and verify the document for you.

This will obviously cost you a bit of money, but, rather safe than sorry I think.

I hope this answered your question.

Feel free to ask further questions here on this topic at no extra cost if you need more information.
