“Management is extremely thankful to the hardworking staff, students, constructive partners and stakeholders for this great achievement,” the university said in a press release.

Thousands Of KNUST Students Deferred For Not Paying Fees
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh reported last week that thousands of students of KNUST have been deferred after allegedly using their fees for sports betting and other activities.
In an earlier notice, the university had warned that students who fail to pay at least 70% of their school fees by April 7, 2022, would have their programmes deferred automatically.
Although the automatic deferment did not start on the given date, students say they have received messages on April 19, 2022, that their programmes have been deferred for failing to meet the minimum requirements of the university’s fee policy.
