Vice Chancellor of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Professor William Otoo Ellis has stated that the decision of Nazir Alema to join ISIS should be delinked from university.

Nazir Nortei Alema, 25, is reported to have joined the ranks of the terrorist organisation and is one of about 10 suspected Muslim youth from Ghana believed to have been convinced by the ideological propagation of the group.

Addressing the First Oath-Swearing and Induction Ceremony for some 10 newly-qualified Veterinary Doctors from the University on Saturday, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Otoo Ellis, said whatever decision Alema took was based on his own conviction.

“I would want to make a passionate appeal to stake holders to be circumspect to separate personal decisions made by an individual from that of the institution, especially after the individual is no more a student of the University.

“The individual in question has completed his course or professional training and is graduated. We do our best to give them the best of training and inculcate in them good moral values and commitment to the cause of humanity.

“This is to ensure that their activities do not contravene ethical standards to advance social harmony and peaceful co-existence,” he said.

The Vice-Chancellor affirmed the University’s resolve to maintain its hard-won reputation through strict adherence to laid down rules and regulations by students and faculty members.
