- Lawyer Alex Afenyo-Markin has said shutting down a UEW campus is a worst action that can be compared to the painful death of the late Major Mahama
- He suspects some 'unseen hands' behind the total shut down in the case to seek public sympathy
The Member of Parliament for Efutu constituency Alexander Afenyo Markin, has lamented the closure of University of Education Winneba campuses, describing it as ‘worse’ than the lynching of Major Mahama.
According to him, shutting down campuses of the university was not part of reliefs they sought for from the High Court. Therefore he will raise the matter in court on Friday June 16, when the case is substantive called for hearing.
“Why will somebody go and close down a public institution? Closing campuses down was not part of the reliefs we sought from the court. This act is in fact worse than the lynching of the soldier at Denkyira-Obuase”, he lamented.
The Efutu lawmaker suspects that, those championing the total closure of the University are doing so in order to court some unnecessary public sympathy.
Mr Markin also denied allegations that, he is the main architect behind the court litigation fronting for the plaintiff Kofi Kwayere.
He revealed that, he only stood brief for lawyer of the plaintiff, but has since come under verbal attacks after the court upheld their pleas leading to the total shutdown of the institution.
The MP however submitted that, what is currently happening is not the right interpretation of the court ruling which he interns to challenge come Friday when the case is recalled.
The Winneba High Court on Tuesday granted injunction by an Assemblyman, Kofi Kwayere who is challenging the constitution of the University Council members.
