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

The University of Education was sued at the Winneba High Court in connection with a writ brought by one Supi Kofi Kwayera represented today Tuesday 13 June, 2017 in court by the Member of Parliament of Effutu, Hon. Alexander Afenyo Markin challenging the legality of certain actions taken by the then Governing Councils of the University.

Subsequent to the writ heard today Tuesday 13 June, 2017, the Honourable Judge ruled that, the relieves sought by the plaintiff should be upheld pending the determination of the case on Friday 16 June, 2017.


In line with the decision of the court, the members of the University Community, comprising, UTAG executives, Deans, Heads of Department, and representatives of Senior Members have therefore decided to shut down the University until Friday 16 June, 2017 when the substantive case will be heard.

This decision has arisen as a result of implementing the Judge’s directive that the Principal Officers of the University be restrained from working until Friday 16 June, 2017 and also the fact that other management members, Principals, Deans and Deputy Registrars were appointed by the Councils whose authority are being challenged.

In order not to flout the directive of the court, the Registrar has been directed by the University community at a meeting held today 13 June, 2017 to communicate the closure of all campuses of the University (Winneba, Kumasi, Mampong-Ashanti, and Ajumako).
