The member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency, Honaroble Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has asserted that, it is harsh and inconsiderate for KNUST to defer Courses of some students due to their inability to settle school fees.
In a post shared on his official Facebook page on Wednesday, 20th April 2022, he wrote;
“The decision by KNUST authorities to defer the courses of some 6,000 students for non-payment of fees is most harsh and inconsiderate considering the current economic crisis.
I appeal to the Ministry of Education to urgently intervene and save the future of these students.
It should not be difficult for government to instruct student support schemes such as the Scholarship Secretariat, Students’ Loan Trust, GNPC Scholarship Foundation, Cocobod Scholarship and GETFund to extend immediate relief to our 6,000 young Ghanaians.
Let us stand in solidarity with these students and help all of them remain in school to achieve their dreams. By way of my modest personal contribution to a solution.
Even though I have already attended to those on my scholarship scheme, any North Tongu constituent who wasn’t on my support programme and is affected should promptly contact the North Tongu MP’s office for assistance.
Perhaps it is time for Parliament to revisit our earlier motion calling for a special subsidy on fees, particularly for needy tertiary students.
Education is a Right.”
