On when the school will reopen, Mr. Yeboah said the council will provide more clarity after the meeting.
“We won’t be able to tell but what I can say is that it will be very soon. Immediately after the meeting, a statement will come out and I can assure the general public it will be very soon.”
He continued to suggest that “possibly they [students] might have to go home for the Christmas holidays and come back and write the examination.
The Chancellor of the University, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, had been leading efforts to ensure the university reconstituted its Governing Council.
