According to the SRC President, Joseph Osei Mensah''There wouldn't be a demonstration today on campus. There has been an engagement between the student's leadership (SRC ) and the management of the Institute for a reconsideration for students who could not register on time and the condition will be that they would have to pay a penalty.

''With the penalty, if you happen to be amongst those who have not registered at all then you're paying a penalty of GH600 and if it happens that you registered provisionally but you have not made full payment you are paying a penalty of GH300''. Joseph Osei Mensah added.
