Members of the Teachers and Education Workers Union (TEWU) at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have embarked on a demonstration to demand the restoration of the old governing council of the University.
They have threatened not to return to work until the old council is restored.
KNUST-TEWU says they do not recognise the Interim Management Council constituted after dissolution of the old council following riots by students which resulted in damage to property.
They aggrieved workers wore red attire and red armbanda and marched through the campus of the university to press home their demands on Monday, 29 October 2018.
They held placards with inscriptions such as “No Obiri Danso, No work”, “No IMC in KNUST”, ” TEWU do not recognise IMC”, “No IMC in KNUST “, “NAPO must go!” among others.
Chairman of the KNUST-TEWU, Mr Charles Arthur indicated that until the old governing council is restored, the school will not be opened.
Some members of TEWU who joined the demonstration told Adehye FM’s Elisha Adarkwah that the dissolution of the governing council and attempts to remove the Vice-Chancellor are not fair.
