Some people are not smiling this week…
The governing council of the University of Education, Winneba, has dismissed five principal officers of the institution following an emergency meeting on Monday.
One other official has had her appointment terminated.
The five are the Vice-Chancellor who was serving a suspension, Professor Mawutor Avoke, Finance Officer, Dr Theophilus Senyo Ackorlie, Daniel Tetteh, Mary Dzimey and Frank Owusu Boateng.
They were interdicted in July 2017 by the UEW governing council to allow for investigations after it emerged that some vital documents at some offices at the centre of an ongoing investigation had gone missing.
Subsequently, in January 2018, lawyers of the five wrote to the University Council, demanding their immediate reinstatement.
Meanwhile, the Principal at the College of languages, Professor Avea Nsoh, in a Citi News interview described the latest development as unfortunate.
“It is very disturbing indeed. It’s very unfortunate and a tragic loss. I’m hoping that they can fight it back to get what they have been due for over 20 years”.
“I know the Vice-Chancellor is a well-composed person who started from the unit level through all the ranks up to the role of Pro-Vice-Chancellor and then the Vice Chancellor. I know the Finance Officer, he is very prolific. He has a lot of networks. I’ve worked with all of those affected,” he added.
