Otumfuo pours their heart out

 Otumfuo pours their heart out

We should all be thankful that at the lengthy closing, the reconstituted Council of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Technological Know-how and Generation was inaugurated and hopefully the college will reopen tomorrow for instructional paintings to renew next Monday.

We ought to all sense a sense of remedy that in the end goodwill has prevailed to underline the reality that during a constitutional democratic putting problems are resolved through communication in consonance with the rule of thumb of regulation and not impunity.

It was painful for the Chancellor of the college, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, that over the decade of his chancellorship, any such drawback could disillusion the orderly and peaceful conduct of academic affairs at the university. The dent could be tough to erase, however, what's important is the Akan adage, that it's far bent but no longer damaged surpasses all proverbs.

It's far how the dastardly act, fuelled specifically by means of a few irresponsible college students and beyond students of the affected halls, would be treated to convey justice to bear firmly and decisively on all individuals who resorted to impunity in dealing with the problem that could chart a brand new starting.

It's far maximum unfortunate that the alumni who petitioned Otumfuo Osei Tutu confirmed utter contempt to the Asantehene and Chancellor of the university, by taking the problem to court docket. The alumni ought to plead alibi as a set with the aid of arguing that it became a few those who took the matter to court docket. Although, that improvement did now not exhibit recognition and belief within the Asantehene.

What is even greater reprehensible is the revelation by Otumfuo Oseitu that on the council meeting wherein it changed into determined to show the halls into the combined house, there has been unanimity among the members which included representatives from the scholars and alumni. Here once more those at the back of the bestialism would possibly well argue that those representatives won't be related to the affected halls in besides.

That might be actual however the skewed presentation of the choice of the overall council to convert those halls into a blended house as an autocratic, authoritarian, and erroneous decision of the Vice Chancellor undermines any defense that the scholar's representative council and the alumni may want to put up in opposing the selection their representatives encouraged.

A person has argued that " a free man, while he fails, must blame no person", so till and unless counter records may be supplied that the mins of the assembly did not reflect proceedings and that strong opposition becomes established towards the idea, which triumphed because of a majority vote, the representatives of the scholars and alumni can never say that they have been of any provider to themselves, university students, college network.

It's miles imperative for those representatives to take into account that when you represent a collection and those who gave you their mandate are against a collective choice you had been concerned with, you have a duty to provide an explanation for the selection of your materials.

If you feel satisfied approximately the justness of the selections but discover it is difficult to sell then you surrender to maintain your integrity but you do not preserve silence as if you were no longer celebrating the choice just because it has long passed bitter. Just the Asantehene stated disturbances in our universities are not uncommon. What is uncommon is the extent of destruction observed during the last demonstration on the KNUST.

Even though it's far tough to realize why the college keeps a consolidated account which includes dues paid by using college students to run their own affairs, it can not be farfetched that it might have come as one of some desperate measures to guard the money against greedy, selfish and corrupt scholar leaders, a number of whom in the unique example of the KNUST are cited to have abused their offices and misappropriated students cash to gather motors.

If then again any college authentic has condoned any unscrupulous scholar leaders to misappropriate funds or deliberately annoyed or undermined authentic efforts by means of scholar leaders to get entry to a few budget for benign and beneficial sports for students, then that needs to additionally prevent.
