Counselor George Lutterodt has slammed students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology for their gross indiscipline and behavior following the violence that erupted during a student demonstration on Monday.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghanaweb.com, the controversial counsellor who was peaking to host Kwaku Owusu Adjei on Anopa Kasapa, on Kasapa Fm, chided the students for taking their anger out on the property of the school.
“How on earth, should students by angry and in their anger, they didn’t take their own dresses to destroy but the property of the school be destroyed and we are looking at them,” he said.
Counsellor Lutterodt maintained that the unfortunate incident could have been avoided if students had restrained and obeyed orders from school authorities, not to hold a vigil which resulted in some brutality meted on them by internal security of the school.
“These are people we are raising to become future leaders and this is how they can force situations, then what are we wasting our money for, it a waste of resources…..Why should people be angry and destroy school properties, if you are angry, go into your dormitory, carry your bag your father bought for you, your trunk, come outside, buy your own matches and burn your dresses and go naked” the counsellor added.
He bemoaned persons apportioning blame to school authorities, particularly the Vice Chancellor of the University, whose decision to convert single sex halls into unisex hall many say is the root cause of all the trouble.
“We have people blaming the Vice Chancellor for what has happened and I sit back and ask what on earth is going on in our country. This level of indiscipline is becoming too much in this country and someone must stand against it” he opined.
The student body decided to boycott classes on Monday, October 22, 2018 as a way of registering their displeasure with happenings on campus.
However, Vice Chancellor of the school Professor Kwasi Obiri Danso, in a broadcast text message to all students, called on them to disregard the decision to boycott their lectures.
The students defied the caution from the VC and embarked on the demonstration which led to destruction of school properties and personal belongings of some employees of the school.
Aggrieved students reportedly set the car of the school's Dean of Students on fire as a way of registering their displeasure.
Other private properties were also vandalized by the students who took their frustrations over student brutality out on campus.
The university has however been closed down indefinitely by the Regional Security Council with meetings already underway to come out with a solution.
