The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has demanded the resignation of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Education-Winneba, Rev Prof Afful-Broni for victimising his lecturers.
The V-C recently dismissed three senior lecturers including the UEW UTAG chapter president Dr Frimpong Kaakyire Duku, Professor Ephraim Avea Nsoh and Prof Sarpong.
Students of the school went on a spontaneous demonstration on Tuesday after news of the dismissals spread.
Speaking to the media on Tuesday, the National president of UTAG, Dr Eric Opoku Mensah said “the victimisation and polarisation on UEW campus” is at variance with President Nana Akufo-Addo’s call on the V-C during his installation last year, to “reconcile all factions regarding the impasse which existed before his investiture”.
“As of now, over 30 people have been sacked, suspended or demoted arbitrarily”, Dr Opoku Mensah said.
“Having failed his assigned task, it is the considered position that Prof Afful-Broni should resign honourably to save UEW from further chaos. UTAG is demanding an unconditional reinstatement of all staff who have been dismissed, demoed or suspended”.
