Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has described the decision of the Management of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to defer the courses of some students inconsiderate.

The North Tongu legislature indicated that, looking at the current economic crisis, the institution should have been considerate.

Okudzeto further called on the Government to as a matter urgency, instruct student support schemes such as the Scholarship Secretariat, Students’ Loan Trust, GNPC Scholarship Foundation, Cocobod Scholarship and GETFund to extend relief to the 6,000 young Ghanaians.

Management of KNUST had to direct some 6,000 students of the institution to defer their courses over non payment of their fees.

Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa further indicated that, even though he had already attended to students on his scholarship scheme, any North Tongu constituent who wasn’t on his support program and is affected by this decision should contact his office for assistance.

He again suggested that, it is time Parliament revisit it’s earlier motion calling for a special subsidy on fees, particularly for needy tertiary students.
