Over 6,000 KNUST students deferred for delay in payment of fees


Over six thousand students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have been asked to go home and return the next academic year.

This is due to delays in payment of their fees.

The students have described the action as harsh.

Management however justified its decision saying some students use their fees to engage in gambling and other stuff.

Sharing his views on this development, a former Deputy Minister of Education in charge of Tertiary, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said the decision by the management is harsh.

“The decision by KNUST authorities to defer the courses of some 6,000 students for non-payment of fees is most harsh and inconsiderate considering the current economic crisis,” he tweeted.
