KNUST Vice Chancellor tells journalists to be more factual, accurate in news report

Prof. William Otoo Ellis - Vice Chancellor of KNUST

Professor William Otoo Ellis, Vice Chancellor of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has appealed to the media to present factual and accurate news reports about the university.

He said it was important for journalists to check their facts with the authorities to avoid costly slips that tended to hurt the image of the institution.

Prof Ellis said he was uncomfortable with the situation where some of them come to him for clarification on issues after they had been published.

This certainly is unacceptable and must end, he said, at a meeting with a section of the media in Kumasi to announce programmes lined up for the KNUST’s 60th anniversary celebration.

The Vice Chancellor said his doors remained opened and would never withhold any information from them.

He appealed to the media to help protect the good reputation the university had built over the past six decades.

Prof Ellis said he was proud of the KNUST’s achievements and tremendous contribution it had made towards the nation’s socio-economic development.

He said the university has trained skilled manpower for various sectors of the economy including health, engineering, science, architecture, business and law  adding that it had given birth to two universities – University of Mines, Tarkwa, and the KNUST Sunyani Campus. A total of 15 private universities are also affiliated to it.
