Students of the University of Education Winneba will now heave a sigh of relief as all four campuses of the school at Winneba, Ajumako, Kumasi and Asante Mampong have been opened.

Management of the school says it was compelled to temporarily shut down the university due to the ambiguity of a court order in relation to the running of the school.

The High Court in Winneba on Tuesday, June 13 ruled that the action of the University’s governing council was illegal since its constitution was without due process.

The university subsequently announced the closure of all its four campuses till yesterday, June 16 when the campuses where opened.

A lecturer with the Kumasi Campus of the University, Mr. Aaron Kuma who has been giving further details to Kapital News said “when you look at our website, a communiqué issued by the school says the school has firmly re-opened as at today [Friday, June 16]”.

He averred that the closure did not affect academic work as it happened during when the school was on recess.

However, administrative issues like admissions etc, were affected and “hopefully, now that we have come we are hoping that from Monday going all activities will resume in full swing and the school will be in full session.

Meanwhile the school is not totally off the hook yet as, Mr. Kumah discloses that the substantive case is yet to be heard by the court.

Background

A private citizen, Supi Kofi Kwayira in May sued the University of Education as well as the Education Ministry for unlawful extension of the school’s governing council’s tenure.
