Former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Education – Winneba (UEW), Professor Mawutor Avoke, says he is resuming work as the Vice Chancellor (VC) of the University today (July 24).
This comes after he held a news conference to register his readiness to make peace when he assumes the position of Vice-Chancellor.
Speaking on news and current affairs programme, ‘Behind the News’ on Uniiq FM, the Principal of the University’s College of Languages at Ajumako, Prof. Ephraim Avea Nsoh, said he fully backs Professor Avoke’s move to resume work as it is his right.
He noted that the Court vindicated Professor Avoke, and so he sees nothing wrong with him resuming work as the Vice Chancellor of the University of Education.
A member of the National Executive Council of UTAG, Dr Harry Agbanu said the current impasse on the campus of UEW should be blamed at the doorstep of politicians.
He said it is high time politicians realized the mess they have created and back off.
Dr. Agbanu said UTAG is optimistic that this time around, the right things will be done and the law adhered to, for sanity to prevail on the UEW campus.
Despite police presence on campus yesterday, Professor Mawutor Avoke made his way to campus after a Senior Staff of the UEW, Kingsley Amoakwah, sued the University and the current Vice-Chancellor, Professor Anthony Afful-Broni.
Mr Amoakwah is trying to get the Court to end Prof. Afful-Broni’s tenure as Vice-Chancellor.
Addressing the media after initial resistance from police, Prof Avoke said he has already made moves towards peace in the University, but that has been marred by controversy for the past two years.
