One of the 12 Kwame Nkrumah University of Sci-ence and Technology (KNUST) Students’ Repre-sentative Council (SRC) executives that were involved in a road accident on the Kumasi/Obuasi road last Friday, will undergo surgery this week, according to hospital authorities.

Medical officers at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hos-pital (KATH) in Kumasi, where the injured students were rushed to, have treated and discharged six of the students and the remaining six are still on admission.

Medical doctors at KATH conveyed this information to Okudzeto Ablakwa, Deputy Minister for Education in-charge of tertiary education, who was at the hospital on Tuesday to visit the injured students.

The minister announced that government would foot the bills of the injured students, adding that the entire country was with the accident victims in prayers.’We wish them speedy recovery,’ he said.

The vehicle, with which the KNUST SRC executives were travelling to Akrokerri for the recently held NUGS congress, collided with an oncoming one, thereby injuring the students.

Mr. Ablakwa said he was impressed about how fast the injured students were recuperating, saying that he was hopeful that the remaining six would be discharged soon.

The deputy minister commended the KATH staff regarding the sort of professionalism with which they administered healthcare to the victims and urged them to sustain their good works.

‘I am highly impressed about the professional manner with which the KATH staff treat their patients, especially, the injured students; and I will urge them to sustain their good works,’ he encouraged.

Mr. Ablakwa was accompanied by Ofori Agyeman Boadi, aka ‘Zuba,’ Obuasi Municipal Chief Executive.
