“With the exception of foreign students and students permitted by the Management of the University to stay, all students are to leave the KNUST campus by midday of 18th September, 2020.
“Security personnel will be visibly stations on the University Campus to ensure peace and security and prevent any unruly behavior by any group of students,” a statement signed by the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah has said.
According to the release, security personnel will be stationed in the school ready to deal with any student or students group that decide to engage in disturbance of any kind.
“...if students decide to misbehave and engage in acts of indiscipline and criminality, they will be handled in accordance with the law. Any student who flouts the law, with offence bordering on criminality, will have criminal investigation opened against him or her and prosecuted before a court of competent jurisdiction.
“Acts of indiscipline and vandalism will no longer be tolerated at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology,” the statement has stressed.
