Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Ken Agyapong, has criticised the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II for “pampering” the embattled Vice Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Prof. Obiri Danso.
According to him, the KNUST Vice Chancellor has proven incapable of handling mattes and must therefore be sacked.
The MP said Prof. Obiri Yeboah is a known member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and has always remained loyal to John Mahama.
He said President Akufo-Addo must be reminded of how the Vice Chancellor treated him when the NPP was in opposition.
“If I had the power I would have sacked him long ago, he’s a thick NDC member, I can give you his history. If the NDC wants us to do politics with the KNUST issue I’m ready for that, the Vice Chancellor is late P.V Obeng’s boy, I don’t know if the NPP doesn’t have this information,” Mr.Agyaong said on the Ekosii sen show.
“When we were going to KNUST, the VC refused to allow Akufo-Addo to enter the place because he was appointed by ex-President Mahama, but Katanga boys who were not happy with the Vice Chancellor’s decision stormed out and led Akufo-Addo’s entourage inside.”
The maverick lawmaker then switched attention to the overlord of the Ashanti kingdom, who serves as the Chancellor of the University of Ghana.
According to him, the Asantehene has so far pampered and shielded Prof. Obiri Danso instead of facilitating his sack.
“The NPP must wake up, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. The VC never thought there will ever be a day where there’ll be a change of government. Otumfuo, please stop pampering the VC otherwise we can’t solve the problem. The guy has to go,” he added.
Meanwhile the return date for students of the University of Ghana remains unknown following disagreements between UTAG, TEWU and the government on the constitution of an interim Governing Council.
