NOBISCO students sign bond of ‘good behaviour’ as school is re-opened


Students of the Northern School of Business (NOBISCO) in Tamale in the Northern Region will be reporting to school Friday May, 27 to commence the 2015/2016 academic year.

The students who have already missed six weeks lectures are expected to sign a bond of good behavior before they are allowed to begin lectures.

The school was closed down after a student riot led to the destruction of school and private property. The students were protesting a management directive which demanded two bags of cement from the students which was a form of punishment because they broke school rules and left campus in March.

All male students have been fined an amount of 65,000 cedis each as cost of destruction during the demonstration, this was after a committee was set up by the Northern Regional Education Director, Alhaji Mohammed Haroon Cambodia to investigate reasons behind the demonstration and recommend possible sanctions for students.

The school was closed down by an order from Alhaji Cambodia amidst preparations by final year students to write the West Africa Examination Certificate papers.

“Students will not break this term, they will stay to cover the lost days”, Headmaster Nuhu have said.

Meanwhile students of the Ghana Senior High and Vitting Technical Senior High Schools also in the Northern Region have returned to school after the two schools were closed down on March 7, 2016 for a similar demonstration which led to the destruction of school property.

Students of these schools also paid a fine of 600 cedis each as cost of items destroyed during the riot and as well signed a bond of good behaviour.
