President of the University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG), Dr. Eric Opoku Mensah and his
committee are calling onto the Government to investigate into the conduct of Prof. Emmanuel Abakah
on the UEW Council likewise urging the Commission on human right and administrative justice (CHRAJ)
to equally investigate into a conflict of involvement against the Chairman of the Governing council
Prof. Emmanuel Abakah. According to the committee (UTAG), the circumstance for which Prof.
Emmanuel was promoted is not applicable. In a press conference, the committee sighted that, “Prof. Abakah
was a former Pro Vice Chancellor of UEW retired in 2014 and left the university under the previous
administration with so much bitterness. therefore, he should have honorably declined acceptance to the
position of council chairman because of the existence of a potential conflict of interest which has clearly been actualized”. However, according to the association (UTAG), the governing council chair used his position to award himself the promotion of professorship. Dr. Eric Opoku Mensah, in his statement, issued for the resignation
of Prof. Rev Afful Broni and he Council Chairman. Prof. Emmanuel Abakah. He also urges the Governing Council of UEW to be up and doing resolve the situation at UEW.
