Recent Disturbances on UEW Campuses in Winneba

The Governing Council of the University of Education, Winneba has noted with concern the recent happenings on our Winneba campuses, especially with regard to agitations escalating into violence on life and property. The university is currently assessing the damage caused and will release a detailed Press Statement to address the issues including the misinformation that has taken the airwaves regarding the university.

The University is committed to the directive of the Regional Minister, Chairman of REGSEC to close the Winneba and Ajumako campuses of the University until further notice. Early next week when Council shall meet, details of the way forward for the University will be communicated to the University Community and the General Public.

We are by this release appealing to all to remain calm and to assure the nation that we shall do all in our power to restore calm and normalcy to campus as soon as possible.
