High court shuts down University of Education

The University of Education, Winneba has been shut down following an injunction from a Winneba High court.

The injunction affects all four satellite campuses of the university in Kumasi, Mampong, Winneba and Ajumako.

The court at a hearing Tuesday, granted an injunction request by a former Assemblyman Kofi Kwayera who has argued against the legality of the University’s Council.

He has said the council’s term of office expired in 2013 and therefore asked that the Vice-Chancellor and other senior members of staff be restrained from exercising their duties.

The presiding judge upheld the reliefs being sought by the plaintiff pending the final determination of the case.

In response, the university in a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer Steve Kamassah directed campuses of the University to be closed until the hearing of the substantive case on Friday.
