The dismissed Vice Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), Professor Mawutor Avoke, and former Finance Officer, Dr. Theophilus Senyo Ackorlie, failed to show up on the campus of the university despite serving notice they were going to resume work today, Monday.
The two, who believed the Supreme Court had quashed a High Court decision that triggered their dismissal, asked the Governing Council of the UEW to prepare their offices to as they resume official duties on November 26, 2018.
But in its response, the Governing Council described the request as baseless and threatened to declare the former UEW principal officers as “persona non-grata” should they step their foot on campus with the intention to occupy their offices.
“I want to state for the avoidance of doubt that your clients still remain dismissed staff of the University and will be declared persona non-grata and dealt with in accordance with the law should they assemble on our campus for the purpose of following your naive advice of coming to re-occupy their former offices; be advised” the letter signed by Chairman of the UEW Governing council, Prof. Emmanuel Nicholas Abaka stated.
Citi News checks at the school suggest that Prof. Avoke and Dr. Ackorlie did not report as expected.
Citi News’ Central Regional Correspondent, Calvis Tetteh, reported that academic activities were ongoing smoothly when he visited the school on Monday.
“Checks from the university’s security also suggested that both Avoke and Ackorlie have not been on campus. Efforts to talk to school authorities proved futile,” Calvis added.
