An open letter to UEW Governing Council Chairman [Article]

It is with the highest spirit of hopeful joy, peace and enjoy that I compose to you this second open . I am really confused that you have lived up to my expectation in regard of “I would like you the most effective of British!”

Sadly, you have disregarded all the great tips in my past open up letter to you and now you seem to be basking in the eddy currents of the UEW ‘Pharaoh’ management (i.e. headteacher and main pupils’ partnership).

Just can’t you realise you are not your standard self any longer? I want to wake you up from the “spell influence” around you since you attended the 19th September 2019 commissioning of the 5-storey block of flats at the UEW North campus, SSNIT Street, Winneba.

Important followers of UEW troubles believe you are failing the President in his selection of you as a greater of the Governing Council. Items happening under your look at are shameful, lawless and unacceptable by all sane persons.

A quick recap of these embarrassing happenings will awaken you and the other governing administration appointees on the Council.

First of all, with out any correct because of diligence, your council permitted Prof. Mrs. Ruby Hanson as performing Pro-Vice-Chancellor through your 1st council assembly in UEW. Time has proven that these a choice was in haste and shameful in that it breached UEW Statutes that you are meant to guard.

In scenario you unsuccessful to go through, allow me remind you that Statutes 7 states inter alia that (Statute 7b) “the Pro-Vice-Chancellor shall be elected by Convocation and appointed by Council” and Statutes 7d states that “in the occasion of a temporary absence of both equally the Vice-Chancellor and Pro-Vice-Chancellor, from the College or when each posts are vacant, the most senior Dean shall act till Council is ready to make a formal appointment.”

I am sure with hindsight, you are conscious of the blunder you have caused. Prof Ruby Hanson was neither elected by convocation nor was she the most senior Dean, nevertheless you accredited her as acting Pro-Vice-Chancellor.

Secondly, a single Andy Ofori-Birikorang has been verified as a substantive Pro-Vice-Chancellor all through your second council assembly, some couple of days ago.

This unpopular conclusion gained great opposition by a few of the authorities appointees on the council, however you failed to stick to our President’s consensus-making instance.

It is alleged that in opposition to audio advice that a court docket injunction software has been served on the establishment, through the Librarian, who is a single of the five Principal Officers of UEW, you accepted the hook, line and sinker arguments of the TEWU consultant, Registrar and other allies on the council to pass the explained Ofori- Birikorang.

An elementary look at from the College of Training, Winneba Act 672 part 11, would have educated you quickly that the Librarian is a Principal Officer of UEW. Principal Officers of the College of Instruction, Winneba segment 11 have that the principal officers of the University shall be: (i) the Vice-Chancellor (ii) the Professional-Vice-Chancellor (iii) the Registrar and (iv) the Finance Officer and (v) the Librarian).

I believe time would let you understand that Ofori-Birikorang’s advertising to ‘Associate Professor’ sins towards UEW standards for appointment and advertising of Senior Members.

Thirdly, the irresponsible victimization that occurred underneath the Prof Abakah led-Council is even now ongoing less than your management.

It is alleged that the most skilled and skilled Senior Deputy Registrar of UEW has been wrongly taken off from her submit of Ajumako College Registrar to an obscured office environment in Winneba. This is gender discrimination.

A Senior Assistant Registrar who was promoted to that rank, just two several years back, has replaced her in Ajumako. As if that was not enough, with out any lawful foundation or acceptable administrative course of action, salaries of two girl secretaries at Ajumako campus have been withheld, as well as that of the Acting Finance Officer, Bruno Chirani.

Are you seriously in demand as chairman of the council? How can you deny workers their earned salaries?

Fourthly, it is alleged that the acting Finance Officer who is in courtroom versus the appointment of a further Finance Officer in his location was suspended by you at the final council assembly.

Might I question “Did you appoint him to the council”? You are not the appointing authority to suspend a council member, for the reason that company governance ethics and principles do not permit these kinds of acts. I call this shameful and lawless because how can you suspend the petitioner and keep the respondents in a circumstance of economical and procurement breaches?”

At last, what has turn out to be of the petitions that the Minster of Education and learning gave you when he your council? Even the so-termed committee you have put together seems to be trophies in a cupboard.

What are you doing about the wrongfully dismissed staff members of UEW whose petitions are in your hand?

Because of to the dim clouds hanging around UEW i.e. inadequate promotions, lousy push, countless court circumstances, incorrect dismissals, transfers, suspensions, demotions to mention but a few, if you do not operate positively and restore hope for the hopeless workers, God’s hand will go to demonstrate that HE is the LORD GOD in the Bible!!!

In conclusion, I want to check with you to justify why the President of the Republic of , designed you the Chairman of the Governing Council so that your worldwide encounter will effects positively on UEW and past.

Make your Christmas holidays truly worth enjoying!!!
