NUGS RUSSIA COMMUNIQUE ON KNUST STUDENTS ACTIVISM TURNED VIOLENT


Following the recent happenings at the Kwame Nkrumah University Of Science and Technology,the National Union Of Ghana Students In Russia(NUGS-RUSSIA) ,would like to call for calm in the students rank and file. We would like to assure you that we are in support of every action you would take in the quest of fighting for justice to prevail and the quest to enjoy basic rights as main stakeholders of the institution.


We would however like to urge you all to refrain from violent activities in this quest and maintain a fruitful and peaceful demonstration as you fight for what rightly is due you.


We would unequivocally like to state that we believe in peaceful dialogue and diplomacy as the right way to go ,but we however believe that , authorities in charge of university management should give that necessary and required audience to students whenever there is a need for a new policy or directive being implemented as far as the students are concerned.


We therefore would like to stress on this fact that, student and their leadership should not be victims of any condescending behavior from authorities responsible for their welfare. It is sad to note that , this is gradually becoming a norm over the years affecting not only students in Ghana but in some cases abroad .


Indeed the revolutionary movement envisaged by the forefathers is showing its light and until students feel as part and parcel of every administrative decision being made as far as their welfare is concerned, the entire republic should not be in shock if such reactions are on the rise


We call for peace in KNUST nevertheless.


NUGS RUSSIA stands for justice and peace ✌


ALUTA CONTINUA VICTORIA ASCERTE
