…Rector Chased Out Over Corruption Allegation

Some angry lecturers of the Wa Polytechnic Monday afternoon chased the Rector of the school out of campus.

The lecturers blocked the road to prevent Prof Emmanuel Marfo-Owusu from having access to his office, after he had exchanged words and threatened to fire a security officer at the school.

The lecturers have never been in favour of Prof. Marfo-Owusu’s appointment.

Their three Unions, the Polytechnic Teachers Association of Ghana (POTAG), the Polytechnic Administration Association of Ghana (PAAG) and the Polytechnic Workers Association of Ghana (POWAG) have all demanded his removal from office.

The Rector is alleged to have procured a vehicle for himself at the cost of over GHS 500,000 without the approval of the Governing Council.

The lecturers accused him of procurement fraud and abuse of office and petitioned the school’s Governing Council to remove him from office until investigations vindicate him.

That was granted, although the Rector has sought an injunction preventing the Council from investigating him.

His presence at the school Monday infuriated the lecturers who did not want him around, at least until investigations into their claims were concluded.

While the Rector drove around the campus, the lecturers run after him chanting, “thief, thief, thief.”
