The university organised the election after the Winneba High Court on November 18, 2019, dismissed a suit filed by Dr Frimpong Kaakyire Duku, a senior lecturer and former President of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) UEW Chapter who challenged the matter in court.

High Court’s decision

The court presided over by Justice Aboagye Tandoh in its ruling Monday, July 27, 2020 ruled that the Vice-Chancellor, Rev Fr Professor Anthony Afful-Broni did not have the right per the statutes of the university to nominate only three preferred individuals to contest in the election, thereby restricting it to a chosen few.

Again, the court quashed the November 2019 election which gave the green light for the election of Prof Ofori-Birikorang as the Pro VC of the UEW as the earlier election had been declared null and void.

The court further ordered the management of the UEW to re-run the election to elect a new Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the university.
