KNUST: New Council Members Sworn In, School Reopens on 16th Nov.


The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has today November 13, officially sworn in new members of the university council.

The council was dissolved following the unprecedented protest staged by students of the university over what they describe as an unfair treatment meted out to colleague students by the internal security of the university.

The supposed peaceful demonstration which led to the vandalism of both private and public properties caused the university to be shut down indefinitely following the agreement between the Regional Security Council and school authorities.

The tango between UTAG , TEWU and government which looked like one never to come to an end has finally faded as the new council members sworn in for academic work of the university to proceed.

Reports suggest that, School is reopening on Friday 16th, November and Academic work will begin on Monday, 19th November, 2018.

In an attempt to investigate into what led to the impasse, the chancellor of the university, Otumfour Osei Tutu II, the Asantene has also formed a five member committee.

Distortion of Academic Calendar

The University’s Public Relations Officer, Kwame Yeboah said, the impasse has distorted the academic calendar and authorities are likely to make an arrangement for end of semester examination to be taken after the Christmas holidays, he said on Citi Fm’s Breakfast Show this morning.
