Students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) will be reporting to campus today (November 16) for full academic work.

This was made known when the Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh inaugurated the 15-member reconstituted Governing Council.

He said students whose actions led to the massive destruction of properties at the school will have to brace themselves up to bear the full cost of damages.

Last October, properties estimated at 1.7 million cedis were destroyed at KNUST following management-student tensions that led to violent protests. The school was shut down indefinitely with its governing council dissolved.

Swearing into office the new Governing Council for KNUST, the Education Minister said it is appropriate for the student front to be held responsible for the damages within the remits of the law.

Meanwhile the Chancellor of KNUST, the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu says the return to normalcy should be devoid of grudges from both management and student body.

He said full investigation will be conducted into the disturbances that happened on campus.
