Rev. Fr. Prof. Afful-Broni, the acting Vice-Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba, (UEW), has been appointed as the substantive Vice-Chancellor.

His appointment follows the dismissal of five principal officers from the university, including former Vice-Chancellor Prof. Mawutor Avoke.

A High Court in Wenneba, in 2017, ordered Professor Mawutor Avoke, prior to his dismissal, to step aside until a case brought against him and the university’s Governing Council, was determined.

The order was made in a case brought before the court by one Supi Kofi Kwayera, who insisted that the Vice-Chancellor and the Finance Officer were operating under the institution’s defunct Governing Council.

The university, through its lawyers, even before the substantive claims were looked into, applied to the court to dismiss the suit on the three counts. The court, however, dismissed their application.

The High Court subsequently found Professor Avoke, and the school’s Finance Officer, Dr Theophilus Senyo Ackorlie, guilty of procurement and other financial irregularities.

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.
