The Minister for education, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh has directed the Vice Chancellor and the chairman of the Governing Council of the University for Education Winneba to henceforth, make peace a priority in all their dealings at the University.

The admonishment was made when the a Minister invited the Vice Chancellor of the university, Rev. Prof. Afful-Broni, the chairman of UEW’s council, Prof. Emmanuel Nicholas Abakah, the Member of Parliament for Efutu, Hon Alexander Afenyo-Markin, some other staffers of UEW and concerned members of the community for a meeting to address the situation that was threatening the stability of peace at UEW.

This comes on the back of the recent demonstrations by lecturers and students of the University against the Vice Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni on grounds of victimization leading to the dismissal of more than 30 lecturers and staff of the University.

Announcing a breakthrough in resolving the impasse, the Minister took to his Facebook page and wrote ‘’ Differences were addressed and settled with an agreement to collaborate in addressing issues that affect stakeholders directly and indirectly. I hope this new found understanding will serve as a bedrock for peaceful deliberations and relations henceforth and that peace in the university be prioritized in all their dealings’’.
