Vice Chancellor Of The University of Ghana Throws Subtle Shade At the Embattled KNUST Vice Chancellor


Accused of tyranny, implementing student averse policies and giving campus security the go-ahead to physically abuse students, the Vice Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Prof Obiri Danso is not having the best time of his career as an educationist.

Today, the KNUST VC and other management members of KNUST are due to meet Otumfour Osei Tutu II the Chancellor of KNUST, to discuss everything that has been happening at the university including but not limited to Monday’s violent demonstration.

While he seems to be in hot waters with his future as KNUST VC hanging in the balance, other Vice Chancellors of public universities are rather getting all the positive press they can get.

Yesterday, we told you that the Vice Chancellor of UPSA, Prof Okoe Amartey has established a GHS 100m scholarship fund for his students – that has seen him in a positive light.

For one, the students of the University of Ghana are very unhappy about their shuttle arrangements. Apparently, management has given a shuttle management monopoly to one company who isn’t doing a very good job.

The UGSRC President, Sylvester Owusu Amoako is reportedly taking steps to organise a demonstration to get the school’s authorities to improve the shuttle situation on the campus.

Knowing that the students have some amount of bottled up tensions that could go awkward very quickly, the UG Vice Chancellor met with the UGSRC to discuss their challenges.

The meeting, which was chaired by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, brought to the fore a few areas of concern among the student front which were tabled and discussed amicably.  Some of the issues bordered on the use of generators during power outages, efficiency in the shuttle services and safety and security.
