The University of Education Winneba, (UEW) has scheduled its election for a Pro-Vice-Chancellor tomorrow Thursday, November 21, 2019. The Pro-Vice-Chancellor’s election was earlier slated for June 13, 2019, but was postponed a day before the election, due to a lawsuit filed against the institution by a lecturer, Dr. Kaakyire Duku Frimpong. But the suit, challenging the Vice-Chancellor’s power to nominate three candidates to compete for the Pro VC position, was dismissed at the High Court in Winneba on Monday on procedural grounds.
Public Relations Officer for the University, Ernest Azutiga, told Citi News the ruling vindicates the University. “The notice of the election has been announced. Come Thursday 21st November, we will have the election. We feel vindicated. It appears that over the years there have been some orchestrated plans to try to frustrate this administration by making sure that, whatever has been planned does not come on. I am sure that those who initiated this process were very aware that this case will not see the light of day. The only sought to buy time.”
