The management of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has justified the decision to defer 6000 students for delayed payment of their fees.

Public Relations Officer at the KNUST, Dr Norris Bekoe explained that the university has over the years hit by the situation where indebted students leave school after graduating and never come back to pay.

He attributed this to the refusal of the management to apply the fee policy hence the decision to apply it now.

Dr Bekoe told TV3’s Ibrahim Abubakar that “over the years we have had challenges of students completing University and then going away with our fees partly because we had not applied the fee policy. So this time around the academic board has decided to apply the fee policy.”

The management of the KNUST on Wednesday announced that 6000 students have been deferred for non-payment of their fees.

The university received flak from North Tongu Member of Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa who said the decision was harsh.

He pleaded with the Minister of Education to intervene.
