MAY 8, 2019 GENERAL NEWS

Below is the full statement issued by the school authorities:

“Our attention has been drawn to publications on various media platforms to the effect that the statue of our revered Chancellor and Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei II, erected at the Kejetia Lorry Terminal, was produced by the Department of Painting and Sculpture.

"we would want to clarify the issue as follows ;

1. The contract to produce Otumfuo Osei Tutu's statue was never awarded to the Department of Painting and Sculpture, KNUST.

2. The project was undertaken by 2 lectures in their individual capacity

“Hence, KNUST as an institution has nothing to do with the production of the statue.

"With our technical expertise , we are however more than willing to assist the public in the production of an excellent monuments".
