The Supreme Court quashed a Winneba High court decision that led to their suspension and subsequent dismissal of Prof. Avoke.

Subsequently, lawyers of dismissed former Vice-Chancellor wrote to the school’s Governing Council directing it to prepare the office of their client to enable him to resume work.

Prior to this period, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, swore Reverend Father Professor Anthony Afful-Broni, as the new Vice Chancellor of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW).

This was amidst a warning by law Professor Raymond Atuguba to President Nana Akufo-Addo for abetting illegality, because the induction happened pending the case challenging the removal of the immediate past Vice-Chancellor.
