New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for the Effutu Constituency, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, wants the Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) Reverend Father Professor A. Afful-Broni to resign because of what he says is the Vice Chancellor’s inability to properly manage the institution.
Less than a year after his induction, Afful-Broni has been accused of victimization, injustice and other actions that are said to have brought the image of the university into disrepute.
The latest has been a state of unrest among students at the university following the dismissal of the UEW UTAG President Dr. Frimpong Duku who has taken the university to court over the absence of a governing council.
But, Afenyo Markin, who has no regrets for the removal of the former VC Prof. Mawutor Avoke wants the current VC to be mindful of events that led to the exit of the former Vice-Chancellor and be guided accordingly.
“Afful-Broni was supposed to do [more], but he has failed. I am sure that in the next few days, if he has conscience, he will resign and leave the university because he has failed the University. Afful-Broni has failed the University; he has misled all of us – that is a matter of fact. Mistakes of the past shouldn’t be repeated”, the legislator said on Eyewitness News on Monday
“I also find it strange that the same things Avoke and co. were doing are being repeated in a worse form. I have cautioned Prof. Afful-Broni but he won’t listen. We fought on the principle that certain things were wrong. So you don’t come in and defeat the very purpose. I will not support that. I have to be consistent. What I stand for is that the right thing is done. I am that in the next few days, the appropriate steps are taken, for the right things will be done because it is about the name of the University and not to victimize people”, he added.
