Most of them used it for sports betting while others used it other irresponsible lifestyles. The information I have is that some of them went to sleep with their girlfriends in hotels. Others have also invested their fees in various businesses,” Dr Ofori Attakora mentioned throughout an interview on Kessben Radio.

He has due to this fact given the defaulting college students a one-week deadline to settle their charges or threat being sacked from the college.
