Unity Hall dining hall was the centre of attraction on Saturday when members of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Students’ Parliament pulled together to debate on issues of students concern.
Saturday’s sitting, which was nearly marred by rain, did not deter some disgruntled parliamentarians who were determined to take part in the sitting at all cost. This was due to the weight attached to the issues laid to be discussed and these have to do with the 2010/2011 KNUST fees and the 2009/2011 audit report.
The SRC president, Mr Yaw Oduro and the local NUGS president, Mr. Ousman Ayariga, who were summoned before the house to answer questions, did not show up but sent messages of their engagement in other duties.
Soon the debate started and this could be described as a heated one.
Some members who kept faith with the debate could not sacrifice it on the altar of anything thereby pushing it into the night.
The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Prosper Zuma has to use his discretion to call for adjournment when some members of the house maintained that the debate continues.
The public gallery was also filled to capacity.
Sitting was adjourned sine die.
