The University of Education, Winneba has stated that its new administration, headed by Vice-Chancellor Professor Mawutor Avoke, has been faced with multiple petitions and injunctions intended to impede the smooth running of the university.

Council Chairman, Nana Ofori Ansah III, has stated that some members of the University, disguising themselves as concerned staff, have been circulating false stories about the Chairman, Vice-Chancellor and the management team.

He further stated that some individuals have taken trivial administrative issues to court while others have employed surrogates who are not affiliated with the university to disrupt academic activities.

Nana Ofori Ansah III said, “Since assuming office, we have received a lot of petitions from all spheres of the university community, in response council set up a reconciliation committee under the chairmanship of a labour expert who is an ILO labour consultant to hear the petitions and make recommendations and the committee has since finished its work and I dare say that they did a marvellous work which has eased the tensions existing in the university.


“Unfortunately not everyone is still happy with the management to bring change, there are elements within the university who under the guise of concerned staff keep churning out fabricated stories about the council especially the chairman and his management team.

“Others are turning to the courts on simple administrative issues while others are using surrogates, most of whom have nothing to do with this university in an attempt to stop any normal move by the management,”.

Speaking to Citi News on the sidelines of the 27th congregation of the University, Nana Ofori Ansah said the University is willing to extend a hand of friendship to all who have grievances and is committed to resolving any issues.
