- KNUST authorities have revealed that they are fearful of the executives of the University and Unity halls
- According to the university's Public Relations Officer, Kwame Osei Yeboah, the authorities are aware students can resort to the courts and the media to frustrate the efforts of the authorities
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kwame Yeboah Jnr, has revealed that the university’s authorities are scared of the executives of the University and Unity halls.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, he said that some of the illegal acts attributed to students of the university are executed by outsiders.
Speaking with Angel FM, he added that some hall executives have been denied access into the halls because they are working to impede the progress of the university.
“Kwame, we are scared of the executives; they are the people who have taken us to court, and you know they will stop at nothing to ensure they emerge victorious.
They have informants, who at a point warned a female student to not step out of the hall as they were going to pelt them with stones,” he revealed.
He explained that this impedes the plans the authorities of the university have, with respect to making it a peaceful place for academic work.
Yeboah Jnr went on to say that some students have taken to social media, as well as other media platforms to hamper the efforts of the university authorities.
“We are scared of them and we have every right to be. You see, staying in the hall as a hall executive is a privilege and not a right, and that privilege can be withdrawn by the university if it deems fit, and that is exactly what we have done. I don’t think we have faulted in doing so,” he argued.
Yeboah Jnr, further assured parents who have their wards in the school to be calm and remain rest assured as their children are being effectively protected.
KNUST was recently in the news as it sought to implement a policy with respect to the gender balance in two of its halls of residence, Unity and University halls.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that police officials arrested three students of the university as they participated in a secret meeting.
The university’s authorities however claimed they had no knowledge of the arrests.
