Breaking News: KNUST Vice-Chancellor ‘asked to step aside’

 

Embattled Vice-Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Prof. Obiri Danso has been asked to step aside following violent protests last week Monday.

The National Council for Tertiary Education has informed the Vice-Chancellor to make way for the interim governing council to take over the administration of the university.

The Professor of Environment Microbiology has been accused by the students of creating an environment of oppression and is referred to by some students as ‘Kumasi Adolf Hitler’.

They embarked on a protest last Monday triggered by student brutalities that weekend. But it turned violent after the students damaged dozens of cars and properties.

Prof. Obiri Danso has been under pressure since and met student leaders to grant several concessions. But it appears to have been too little too late.

’Step aside’ is a Ghanaian political euphemism for sacking.

Prof. Obiri Danso is the 12th Vice-Chancellor of the university and was appointed by the governing council in August 2016 with a four-year mandate set to expire in 2020.

The Vice-Chancellor retains the support of his colleagues within the Vice-Chancellors Ghana (VCG) and the school’s chapter of the University Teachers Association (UTAG).
