The Member of Parliament (MP) for Efutu Constituency in the Central region, Alexander Kwamina Afenyo-Markin has described the current Vice Chancellor of the University of Education Winneba (UEW), Reverend Father Prof Anthony Afful-Broni as a complete failure.
The Member of Parliament in a Facebook post,criticized the leadership of the University for allegedly propagating a Tribalistic Agenda to sideline others in the University.
“If Tribalism was bad yesterday at UEW,it must be bad today too” he emphasized”
Allegations against Alhassan Bawa
The Member of Parliament also alleged that one Mr Alhassan Bawa,a lecturer at the University of Education, Winneba,was being hired to attack his personality.
He questioned why the Vice Chancellor was refusing to write the articles written by Mr Alhassan Bawa to sabotage heim himself.
“Alhassan Bawa,a lecturer at UEW has been hired by Afful -Broni to attack me . Well I wonder why Afful Broni is refusing to write the articles himself.” He said.
“I know Bawa’s grammar is very poor. Afful -Broni is digging his own trap pit and very soon he will fall deep into it. Time shall speak. ” He noted.
He questioned why the Vice Chancellor,viciously attacked the image of the dismissed former VC,Avorke ,a situation he believed has been exposed with time.
“Afful-Broni in his cassock and without shame viciously attacked the image of Avoke but time has exposed all the lies. As the inevitable awaits him, he is now using Bawa and a busy body independent candidate to neutralise me through character assassination. Destroying the lives of others cant be part of any christian virtue. Avoke, Avea Nsoh, Bekoe,Sarpong, Dennis, Kaakyire and Ahmed Jinapor will soon see real justice. ” He emphasized.
“In fact many others will see their dignity being restored and it shall be like a dream. The ravening clouds shall not long be victorious.When afful-Broni was busily releasing university documents at dead nights to implicate his boss,was he sacked? When Bawa was writing articles against Avoke, was he sacked? Didn’t Avoke call him to his office to know his concerns? Why such heartless victimization? Aren’t some of these victims catholics? Aren’t they children of God? ”
“How can Afful- Broni crucify Avoke for awarding contracts irregularly and after getting him out turn round to uphold the same contracts and pay more money? Was the motive merely to take over by any means necessary?”
“If tribalism was bad yesterday at UEW then its bad today as well.” He concluded.
Problems at UEW
There is currently uneasy calm at the university following the dismissal of some senior members including Professor Ephraim Avea Nsoh former Upper East Regional Minister and Principal of the College of Languages Education at Ajumako and one Dr. Frimpong Kakyire Duku who is the local President of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG).
Mr. Afenyo Markin who is not happy about the turn of events under the watch of the current Vice-Chancellor is warning of revolt against his administration calling on him to resign immediately if he has conscience.
He accused him of repeating the same mistakes and even worse than was witnessed under his predecessor Professor Mawutor Avoke leading to his removal from office.
“Afful-Broni was supposed to do [more], but he has failed. I am sure that in the next few days if he has a 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”, he disclosed on Accra-based Citi Fm.
