KNUST loses right to host 2019 GUSA games

- The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) will not host the 2019 Ghana University Sports Association ( GUSA ) games.

- This was as a result of a student riot that occurred there a few weeks ago

- The University of Ghana is being considered as a venue for the games

Information available to YEN.com.gh shows that the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has lost the right to host the 26th Mini Ghana University Sports Association ( GUSA ) games.

According to a report by MYNewsGH.com, this was as a result of the fact that KNUST was closed down for about three weeks as a result of student riots.

YEN.com.gh understands that the games were scheduled to come off in January 2019, but this clashed with the academic calendar of the university that was changed due to the riots.

Authorities of the university, therefore, registered their inability to host the event stating it may disrupt the academic work of the school after organizers rescheduled it to January 23 to February 2, 2018.

AT the moment, the University of Ghana (UG) is being considered because KNUST will also be hosting nursing training colleges in the country.

KNUST will not hold a graduation ceremony for its Masters Degree students following a change in the academic calendar in view of violent crises that rocked the school.

According to University Relations Officer (URO), Mr. Kwame Yeboah Jnr, the academic board of the university, chaired by Prof. Kwesi Obiri Danso, met last week and made the latest decision including a change in the entire academic calendar.

Students are expected back in school on January 4, 2019 to ready themselves for the end of semester examination which begins on January 7, 2019 and ends on January 17, 2019, bringing a close to the first semester.
