An administrator of the Navrongo Community Health Nursing Training College has cautioned student nurses against spending monies meant for school on their partners.
Sumani Inusah was speaking in a meeting with the students in the company of the Upper East regional minister.
The administrator particularly admonished the male students of the school, to desist from using school fees to acquire expensive devices such as mobile phones for their girlfriends.
Senyalah Castro reported that while speaking on the sideline at an engagement where students raised questions over a directive on school fees, Inusah revealed that the disturbing practice of students spending their fees, has resulted in trainees owing the college over half a million cedis.
He strongly condemned the lavish spending behaviours of the students and urged them to refrain from actions that put their parents under additional financial burdens.
Inusah was quoted as saying: "Though there are a few genuine cases when students can’t pay fees for certain reasons, a lot of the times, students spent the school fees. We are aware of the huge spending you make on your girlfriends and boyfriends.
The school is aware that a male student bought a mobile phone worth about GHC 2,800 for his girlfriend on her birthday."
"Some of you have plasma televisions in your rooms. There are so many examples. It is very sad that you spend your fees on your girlfriends and make your rooms look good. Your parents will suffer to gather money for your fees and when they give it to you; you spend it on unnecessary things”.
For her part, the Upper East regional minister, Paulina Patience Abayage assured the management and students of her unwavering support for the institution.
She stated that she will do everything humanly possible to expand facilities at the school to bridge the infrastructure deficit.
