- Halls and hostels remain closed as KNUST is set to reopen on Thursday, November 8, 2018
- Students have been asked to stay home until further notice
- KNUST is believed to be closed down as a result of TEWU and UTAG strike actions
Traditional halls of residence and hostels remain closed despite government’s directive for students to resume school on Thursday, November 8, 2018.
Students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) who went to school yesterday were sent to go back home.
Reports sighted on MyNewsGh.com indicates that only students offering pharmacy have been allowed access into their rooms after confirmation from the school’s registrar to the hall management.
It is believed that the students commute from school to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital to have their practical rotations.
Students have been advised to stay home and not report to school today as the school remains closed.
Earlier reports by YEN.com.gh following violent protests by students on Monday, October 22, 2018, the university was closed down indefinitely.
University Teachers Association (UTAG) and Tertiary Education Workers Union (TEWU) of KNUST have failed to put up with a directive from government to replace the old council which was dissolved following the protests.
The unions have since then insisted on the reconstitution of the old council or continue to stay away from work.
The Chancellor of the University, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, have therefore taken the decision to hold peace talks with them to resume their duties and ensure the opening of the university
