The Chairman of the Senior Staff Association of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) Kingsley Amoakwah has sued the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni and the education outfit.
The applicant wants the High Court to restrain Prof. Afful-Broni from holding himself as the Vice-Chancellor or performing any such functions in that capacity of UEW.
Also, he is also praying the court to restrain Prof. Afful-Broni from “continuously interfering in the administration of Prof. Mawutor Avoke, the legitimate vice chancellor” of UEW.
“An order restraining Prof. Afful-Broni, his assigns, agents, or any person claiming through him from walking or driving within the precincts of the Main Administration Block of UEW, where Prof. Avoke’s office is located,” the application said.
It added: “An order directing the Winneba District Police Commander to provide adequate police protection to enable Prof. Avoke perform his duties as Vice-Chancellor without any fear of attack from hoodlums and thugs who may threaten his life.
“A declaration that an attempt by the Governing Council and UEW to ignore the findings of the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) Report is unjust, illegal, null and void.
“A declaration that the EOCO Report which findings exonerated Prof. Avoke overrides and supersedes all proceedings and findings of the supposed fact-finding committee set up by the Governing Council of the university.”
“A declaration that the setting up of a fact-finding committee to investigate Prof. Mawutor on matters that were already before EOCO, amounted to an abuse of office, the wrongful exercise of discretion, an act of bias and double jeopardy.
“A declaration that the Governing Council of the university had no jurisdiction to investigate a criminal allegation against Prof. Avoke when same issues and facts were before EOCO.
“A declaration that the Governing Council exceeded its jurisdiction when it set-up a fact-finding committee in a matter already before EOCO.”
“A declaration that the order of the council directing Prof. Mawutor Avoke to step aside as the Vice-Chancellor was borne out of bad faith,” it noted.
