The Principal of the Mampong Midwifery School in the Ashanti region, Lydia Yamoah has denied reports that she has refused to allow some past students of the school write their referral examination papers.
The students numbering 123 claim their principal has barred them from re-writing the referral papers slated for March this year.
They claim she took the decision after they failed to pay school fees like the regular students.
The students had in an earlier interview told Citi News
they are heading to court to challenge her decision.
But the principal tells Citi News
she has neither requested nor received money from the past students.
“They have been registered and the Nurses and Midwives Council is saying those doing their project work need a longer time than the one or one and half month revision,” she stated.
According to Madam Yamoah: “Around this time, their project work should be with the council.
It is the Council that is saying they can’t so their monies are still with the council and I have not gone for the refund”.
“I am the one going to receive their index numbers, see to the examiners that will come because everything comes to the principal of the school.
They have not paid anything to me.
They paid to the Nurses and Midwives council.
They have completed.
I don’t have anything to do with them.
They sent me to the BNI and after I explained to them [BNI], they asked me to just come,” she added.
