Prostitution At Tamale Nurses Training College
Principal Denies Allegation
Mr Sayimah Kombian, Principal of the Tamale Nurses Training College (NTC) has said allegations and rumours of prostitution against his school and students are unfounded and baseless. He therefore challenged those spreading the rumuor to come forward with hard evidence or stop defaming the image and hard won reputation of the students and institution for all the 36 years that it has been in existence.

Mr. Kombian made this declaration in an exclusive interview with Joseph Ziem, fiila FM reporter. According to the Principal, as much as the allegations might appear to be true they should be backed by concrete evidence. Rumuors have been rife in the Tamale Metropolis that some students of NTC have been engaging in prostitution. Critics and social commentators have attributed the phenomenon on lack of potable water, inadequate hostel facility and power outages among other social amenities. 


It has been alleged that, men who wanted girls for a date, just needed to carry some gallons of water, gas cylinders and burners to the college and they easily walked away with susceptible female student.


Refuting the allegations further, John Bornah, Assistant Principal of Tamale NTC noted that, the allegations started somewhere 1980 when the college was established. Mr. Bornah maintained that, no student stays outside the college up to 10 pm in the night, adding that there is someone who has been charged to keep an eye on the movement of students in the night on campus aside the official security man for the college.


Meanwhile, in an earlier interview with Konlan Lambongang, the SRC President of the Tamale NTC, he urged authorities of the college to erect fence walls around the school. He believed in every institution, there are recalcitrants adding that, the erection of the fence will limit the movement of students and influx of visitors to the college.
