The University Teachers Association of Ghana says the new 7-member governing council at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is illegal.

According to the UTAG KNUST branch, the government did not follow the proper procedures to dissolve the old governing council in order to inaugurate a new one in its place.

UTAG KNUST is “surprised and indeed disturbed by the dissolution of the university’s Governing Council by the government in disregard to the Act and Statutes governing the university,” a statement signed by Eric K. Forkuo, the president of UTAG KNUST said.

Yesterday, the government announced that after ministers visited KNUST and separately met both the governing council and the KNUST SRC, it had decided to dissolve the governing council and inaugurated a new one in its place.

The new governing council has been tasked to reopen the university within 14 days, restore teaching and learning at the university and also lead investigations into the occurrences at the university.

They are to do all these within 3 months after which their mandate would have come to an end.

Meanwhile, UTAG KNUST has promised not to cooperate with this new governing council as it stated “emphatically that it does not accept this interim arrangement by Government and insist on Government allowing the Act and Statutes of the university to work.”

Gloomy days ahead for KNUST.
