The University of Education-Winneba, UEW students' demonstration has entered day two as they vow to continue until their sacked lecturers are reinstated.

Some students of UEW on Tuesday protested the sacking of some lecturers by the Vice Chancellor Rev. Prof. Afful-Broni.

Speaking to Citi FM, some students of the school said the sacked lecturers have greatly impacted teaching and learning in the school and their dismissal will be unfair to the school fraternity.

Media reports also indicate that the Alumni of the school have served notice to join the demonstration if issues are not resolved by Monday.

“That the victimization and polarization on UEW campus is at variance with the President that the VC should reconcile all factions regarding the impasse which existed before his investiture, as at now over 30 people have been sacked, suspended or demoted arbitrarily.

“having failed his assigned task, It is the considered position that Prof Afful-Broni should resign honourably to save UEW from further chaos. UTAG is demanding an unconditional reinstatement of all staff who have been dismissed, demoted or suspended”.
