The Parent and Teacher Association (PTA), Old Students and management of the Kumasi Technical Institute(KTI), have unanimously decided not to partake in the upcoming super zonal stage of the annual inter-school and colleges competition.
In a meeting with the press,
the decision forms “part of the measures to bring peace and unwarranted violence to the school and the community”.
“Anybody who goes there (Baba Yara Sports Stadium) with KTI uniform or in the name of KTI does so at his or her own risk”, the statement further continues.
The competition which is slated on the 23rd-24th of February, 2017, will bring together participating schools who qualified in the zonal competition which was held earlier this month at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
About 37 students of the Kumasi Technical Institute (KTI) were detained after clashes with the Police.
And the students are said to have blocked roads in a jubilant mood on Tuesday (February 14, 2017) after placing third in the Inter-school sports competition at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
They blocked the road from the Amakom roundabout to their school, causing heavy vehicular traffic and inconvenience for motorists.
The Police fired gunshots and tear gas to disperse the angry students who were said to have resisted the Police attempt to calm the situation by throwing stones.
