The John Mahama 2020 campaign team says it has noted with concern the impasse between students and authorities of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and its attendant violent manifestations.
A statement signed by Spokesperson for the campaign, James Agyenim- Boateng, said the incident is by far the most disruptive student manifestation in the recent past.
The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology was closed down indefinitely, following violent protests, Monday.
The decision was taken after a meeting between school authorities and the Ashanti Regional Security Council (REGSEC).
The Regional Minister, Simon Osei-Mensah addressing the press after the meeting, announced that a curfew has been put in place effective 6:00pm Monday.
He added that from 6:00am to 12:00 noon Tuesday, all students “including student leaders” should vacate the campus premises.
Only foreign students are spared. According to the Minister, a single hostel which will be protected by security will be provided for them.
