The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has cautioned students about the kind of videos and photos they take and save on their phones especially the ‘naughty’ ones. According to the school, it will not hesitate to dismiss or rusticate persons involved when they get leaked. Over the years some videos and photos have been leaked onto the internet involving students of the university.
This has caused some level of public ridicule of the university. However, speaking at the matriculation ceremony of the college of health sciences at the great hall of KNUST, the provost of the college of health science Prof. Tsiri Agbenyegah said the university will not allow such persons to damage the hard won reputation of the university. He therefore admonished students to be mindful in that regards.
“With the advent of smartphones I will urge you all to be very careful of the pictures and videos that you take and store on your phones especially the private ones and the naughty ones. If they get leaked you can be dismissed or rusticated for bringing the name of the university into disrepute’’ he said.
Prof. Tsiri Agbenyegah also advised the first years to make time to go through the student’s handbook which will be made available to them to help them get acquainted with the rules and regulations of the university.
Over 19,383 students who gained admission at the KNUST were formally admitted into the school by the Vice Chancellor Professor, Kwasi Obiri Danso. The matriculates swore to be of good conduct and to observe the regulations of the school.
