First Deputy Speaker Joseph Osei-Owusu who chaired affairs of the House on Wednesday cautioned Members of Parliament (MPs) not to make inflammatory comment contributing to statement made on Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

“I would take any one off who makes comments that would degenerate into heated debate on the floor of the House”.

The first Deputy Speaker made this remarks when Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram Samuel Nartey George made a statement on the current impasses on KNUST campus.

He noted that the statement made by the Ningo-Prampram lawmaker was one of the good statement made on the floor of the House.

Mr. Samuel Nartey George noted that it is worrying how a policy aimed at increasing female intake has ended up reducing the number of males in traditionally male halls.

“Increased of female enrollment must not come at the cost of several decades of tradition, there are several novel ways by which this issue can be addressed the tradition also preserved, he lamented.

The first Deputy Speaker from time to time had to draw MPs attention to the caution he gave when they were drifting from the statement made.
