 More than 600 students could not be admitted into the Gambaga College of Education in the North East Region of Ghana due to inadequate classrooms and hostel facilities. 

The Principal of the College, Mr. Kassim Korah Nantomah disclosed that the institution could only admit 300 students for the 2020/2021 academic year.

The Principal made these assertions while addressing media men after a special gathering on campus to inaugurate a newly constructed 10-unit boys hostel block.

Mr. Kassim stated that “It is because of the lack of infrastructure that is why we admitted only 300 students.

It is very difficult to sit in my office as a Principal because parents of qualified applicants are always knocking on my door for me to admit their wards but unfortunately, we do not have enough facilities to accommodate them”.

Gambaga College of Education which was established in the year 2013 as the first and only College in Mamprugu is being faced with severe infrastructural challenges. 

The College since its inception 9-years ago has been operating in an old basic school compound until the authorities renovated it to admit its first batch of students. 

With the construction work for the main campus stalled, students are being compelled to stay far away from the school and will have to walk several miles daily to attend lectures and other learning activities.

According to the Principal, the construction of the 10-unit boy’s block which was funded from the school’s Internally Generated Fund (IGF) was an effort by the Management of the College to deal with the acute lack of physical infrastructure in the College.

“Somewhere along the line in the last academic year, we were promised that the government had earmarked the College to be given a hostel facility that would contain 600 students and a lecture hall. 

But when we came back, COVID-19 set in and we never heard anything again. We were wondering where we were going to house the students that will be admitted in the next academic year and that is what informed our decision to quickly start the building” the Principal indicated.

The new dormitory facility is estimated to house nearly 400 students and constructed by the De-Don’s construction was handed over to the Council Chairman of the College.

The Council Chairman expressed worry over the inability of the College to admit more students due to the inadequate infrastructure.
