Tamale radio personality, Mr. Musah Abdul Halik, popularly known by his showbiz name, DJ Tell, has finally rendered an unqualified apology for his comments to the effect that women in the nursing industry were "stupid", and also equating nurses to "sex workers".
After tremendous pressure was mounted on the embattled disc jockey and Zaa FM - the station he works for - from the Nurses and Midwives Association and the general public.
The Nurses and Midwives Association shared a press release urging nurses to disregard DJ Tell's comments, and questioned the popular radio personality's professional integrity as a media p practitioner.
"We wish to state unequivocally, and on record, that these comments are as uncivilized, uncouth and unprofessional as the personality behind it. We are hereby calling on all Nurses and the general public to disregard those comment(s) and treat them with the contempt they deserve. Indeed, it is unfortunate and disheartening that Mr. Halik has brazenly and unintelligently failed to draw a line between his personal squabbles and professionalism, a matter which we believe poses serious questions about his integrity and qualification as a recognized media practitioner. For while these comments defy common sense and reasoning, they also grossly defy the ethics of Journalism and regulations outlined by the National Media Commission and the National Communications Authority.” Read the NMA press release.
