Dr. Norris Bekoe, the University Relations Officer (URO) at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has revealed that some students who drive on campus are unable to take their cars home during vacation because they are unable to explain to their parents how they obtained the funds to purchase the vehicles. He expressed this in support of the decision to defer the 6000 students who had not paid their fees on time.
Dr. Norris Bekoe Speaks;
It will amaze you to know that we have Students on campus who actually have cars, and when they are on vacation, they can’t take the cars home because they won’t be able to tell their parents how they got those cars.
I remember somewhere last year or so, a student had lied to the parent that he was part of the graduating class and the parent had come for his graduation on campus only to find out that the ward was in his second year after being in the school for four years, he added.
That parent collapsed in the office of the Dean of Students. We had to call the ambulance to resuscitate that parent.
