GOVT dissolves KNUST governing council.
Written by Saltfmonline.com on October 25, 2018
Information reaching saltfmonline.com indicates that Government has dissolved the governing Council of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) following the violent protest by students that led to the destruction of school properties.
An interim council has also been put in place to take charge of the school until a substantive council is constituted.
The interim Council chaired by Nana Effah Apenteng, Paramount Chief of the Bompata Traditional Area will have a three-month tenure.
This action comes after recommendations made by the Minister for Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh after he led a high powered delegation, including the Minister for National Security, Albert Kan Dapaah and the Minister-Designate for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah to Kumasi.
Government has also directed that the University reopens within fourteen days to enable academic work to continue.
