Court order for reinstatement of Prof. Avoke good for the constitution-Ziggah

Educationist and lecturer at the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), Mr. Samuel Ziggah, has opined that the court ruling ordering the reinstatement of Prof. Mawutor Avoke as Vice-Chancellor is good for the constitution and education.

He posited that although people will have their opinions, the order by the court was good for the rule of law.

He said what happened to the professor could have happened to anyone.

He explained that some would have committed suicide if they were in the shoes of Prof. Avoke.

The Winneba High Court presided over by his lordship, Aboagye Tandoh, has ordered that Prof. Mawutor Avoke be reinstated as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba.

The court ruled that all others who lost their positions in the school or were affected by the long legal tussle to be reinstated.

The court further ordered that their salary arrears be paid to them with retrospective effect from the day they were unlawfully removed.

Mr. Ziggah speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm indicated that the order by the court was good news.

He described Prof. Avoke as an honest and humble man who served the school well.

When asked if he supports the assertion that the removal of Prof. Avoke was political said it does not matter if it was political. That is in the past. We have to face the new development and move forward.
