The Member of Parliament for Efutu, Alexander Afenyo Markin has listed fresh and heacy charges on the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba, Rev Prof. Afful-Broni to mount on the University Council to remove him.
Mr. Afenyo Markin believes Prof. Avoke’s reinstatement will promote justice and fairness.
A letter by the MP dated October 24, 2019, and addressed to the Chairman of the Council has it that an investigation conducted by the EOCO has indicted the VC.
The same report has also exonerated the former Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Mawutor Avoke and his Finance officer, Dr Theophilus Ackorlie Senyo of any wrongdoings.
As a result, Mr Afenyo-Markin who was the petitioner in the case that was sent to the EOCO through the Minister of Education, is asking for the implementation of the report’s findings and recommendations.
“I have read in detail the report of EOCO and it appears regrettable that Rev Father Professor Afful Broni who was the lead complainant of the procurement irregularity and persistently urged my office to pursue same was indicted whereas his boss, Prof. Mawutor Avoke and the Finance Officer, Dr. Theophilus Senyo Akorlie were completely exonerated by EOCO of any wrongdoing.”
“I expect that in the interest of justice and fairness, your council upon receipt of this report will do the needful and take appropriate action. I need to reiterate that Ghanaians are following the events of the Education of Winneba keenly,” excerpts of the letter said.
