Deputy A-G fingered in Sunyani Nursing College allowances scandal

Information gathered by the Town Newspaper indicates that the Sunyani Nursing and Midwifery Training College (SNMTC) has spent a whooping GH₵300,000.00 as board sitting allowance.

Our sources say the Deputy Attorney General, Hon. Alfred Tuah-Yeboah, who doubles as Board Chairman of the College, together with the Principal of the College, Dr Victoria Amoah, supervised the expenditure and used the said amount as sitting allowances.

It can be recalled that in 2017, Madam Amoah, who was previously the Principal of Tepa Nursing Training College was accused of admission fraud after an Audit Report exposed her.

However, she was covered up by the then Health Minister due to mysterious reasons. She was then transferred her to the Sunyani Nursing Training College.

Ugly record

The Tepa Divisional Police command invited her before it on Thursday June 15, 2017 to answer questions of fraud allegations leveled against her.

Madam Amoah and an accountant of the College Asamoah Richard were cited in an alleged GH₵10 million fraud.

The two administrative members allegedly used fake receipts and invoices to milk the government institution during every admission year, according to reports. The alleged corrupt practice began in 2011, two years after, the College was established.
