All those who lost their jobs at the school or were victimized by the long legal battle will be reinstated, and their salary arrears will be paid back to them with retroactive effect from the day they were wrongfully dismissed, according to the court.

Prof. Avoke’s problems began in 2017 when a Winneba High Court ordered him to step down until the outcome of a case filed against him and the University’s Governing Council.

Supi Kofi Kwayera brought the case to court, claiming that the Vice-Chancellor and the Finance Officer were acting on behalf of the institution’s defunct governing council.

The plaintiff claimed that the University’s Council’s mandate expired in November 2013, but that the Education Ministry failed to form a new Governing Council for the university, instead, allowing the defunct Governing Council, which had no mandate, to continue performing the functions of a properly constituted Governing Council.

Prof Avoke is also accused of financial and procurement violations, according to Supi Kofi Kwayera.

Prof Avoke, along with a few other University Principal Officers, was dismissed by the school’s Governing Council following the Court’s decision in December 2017.

Some instructors described it as politically inspired.

The ruling of the High Court, which resulted in the removal, was later overturned by the Supreme Court.

The school’s administration, on the other hand, has claimed that Prof. Avoke will not be reinstated because his dismissal was decided by the Governing Council of the institution.
