The Student Executive Council of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in joint forces with the School’s Student Representative Council (SRC) Parliamentary Council and all student leaders have declared a boycott of lectures to register their displeasure against the school’s authorities in the light of recent events which has seen students being manhandled by the University’s security personnel.
‘ACTION NOW, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH’ and explains that 22nd October 2018, the student body is boycotting all lectures on campus and are embarking on a demonstration as they have had enough of student brutalities.
Earlier, the SRC in a differently signed communique called for calm among the student body as they work to address the scores of brutalities suffered at the hands of the University’s security.
They defined the actions of the University’s security personnel as a gross deviation from their core mandate as they are to ensure the protection of properties and welfare of students.
They called on the student body to register their displeasure with them especially those that have lately suffered some of these despicable brutalities at the hands of the Securities as they seek to exhaust all available channels to make sure the culpable security personnel are brought to book.
The communique ended with a Bolden note, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
It is unclear why they have resorted to embark on the demonstration in its latest development but our sources reveal that the authorities of the school are blocking the channels to hear the concerns of the Student’s Executive Council hence, their resort to demonstrating and boycotting lectures.
They have also started a social media campaign to impress on President Akufo-Addo to relieve Prof. Obiri Danso off his post as the School’s Vice-Chancellor.
