Woman Faints after Arriving at School for Son’s Graduation Only to Discover He is Still in Second Year

A recent publication by 3news.com shared the story of a parent who fainted upon finding out the son who was meant to be graduating was still in his second year.

According to the report, the parent passed out during the graduation ceremony of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology at the Dean of Students’ office.

The University Relations Officer at KNUST, Dr Norris Bekoe, encouraged parents to request proof of school fees payment from their ward.

He also implored the guardians to check on their children’s academic performance and behaviour in school.

Dr Norris Bekoe highlighted that there are students who pay little to no attention to their academics, which is the main reason why they are in school. As a result, they obtain Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA), which is below the passing mark.

When that happens, they are forced to reply for new admission and start all over again sometimes, without their parents’ knowledge, 3news.com reported.

Meanwhile,The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has halted the operations of all Modern Coast buses.

In a statement released on Monday, July 25, the authority announced that it had launched investigations following the tragic accident that claimed at least 34 lives on Sunday, July 24.

The suspension affects 31 buses plying all the seven routes across the country.
