Sack Vice-chancellor ! KNUST student tells Govt
Written by Saltfmonline.com on October 25, 2018
A group calling itself Concerned Students of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has called on government to sack the Vice-Chancellor of the university.
The group stated management under Prof Kwasi Obiri Danso is appalling with students suffering under his autocratic leadership.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Emmanuel Yiadom Boakye said “the concerned students have resolved that the failure of leadership from the university management is solely responsible for the unfortunate event of last Monday and calls for the V-C, Dean of students, head of security, university relations officer to be set aside for investigations and other relevant issues to continue.”
The group said they believed the actions and inactions of these persons led to Monday’s protest and their continuous stay in office will mean more of Monday’s incident could happen again.
The group also wants an interim management body commissioned to take over the affairs of the university which has been indefinitely closed.Although the group insists their action on Monday has nothing to do with the recent conversion of two single halls into mixed ones, they are demanding a reversal of the decision.
“The immediate cause of the demonstration on Monday was the brutalities meted on our students,” Boakye said. Instead of building a wall around the school, the group wants university authorities to invest that money into building new halls for female students.
“We believe firmly that the bricks, blocks, strength, energy and funds used in building these walls could have been channelled in raising a very firm foundation for our next hall that could have accommodated all the females that the VC would have wanted to admit,” he added.
