'Dismissed' UEW VC Avoke gives ultimatum to be reinstated

The estranged Vice Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), Prof Mawutor Avoke has initiated fresh moves aimed at getting his position at the university back.

Together with Dr Theopholus Senyo Ackolie, also an estranged Finance Officer of the UEW, they have through their lawyers asked the University to prepare their offices and make available to them the necessary tools and resources necessary for them to resume work not later than November 26, 2018.

They are also asking the UEW to pay all the entitlements due them, which the university “illegally and unreasonably withheld from them from the time of their illegal interdictions, through to their illegal dismissals, and to date.”

The letter, a copy of which has been seen by Graphic Online is dated Tuesday November 20, 2018 and addressed to the chairman of the UEW Council and signed by their solicitor, Harold Tivah Atuguba of Atuguba and Associates.

“We wish to advise, and advice is hereby given, that should you, within Seven (7) days of receipt of this letter, fail to commit, unequivocally, to meeting the above demands, we shall proceed and resort to other lawful, processes or avenues to vindicate the constitutional, statutory, and legal rights of our Clients without further recourse to you,” they stated.
