Politics of Monday, 23 May 2016
The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) branch of the Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) has condemned what it says is the resort to lies, deception and tribal politics by the ruling party and its supporters.
It said it found it ridiculous that anybody should engage in such shameful ploy in their desperate bid to hold on to political power.
A press statement signed by Mr. Enoch Kobby Amoako Gyimah, KNUST-TESCON President, in Kumasi, said it was important to recognize that students were discerning and would not be swayed by such pranks.
It stated that the group had faith in the students and that they would make the right judgement on voting day.
The statement mocked the government over alleged attempts to claim credit for on-going improvement of roads at the university campus.
The group aligned to the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) said this was being done by the University’s Administration.
Reports in the social media that the government was implementing that project was completely false and must be disregarded.
Again it said it was untrue that the university hospital was also built by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government as their rivals in the Tertiary Educational Institutions Network (TEIN) would want Ghanaians to believe.
