The Management of the University of Education,
Winneba (UEW) says its campuses remain closed to students as directed
by the government for all schools to close down until further notice.
However, the Management has cautioned students mischievous using a
statement made by the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Andy Ofori-Birikorang,
in an interview with Joy News as an excuse to sneak their way into the
university premises to accessing the University internet and wifi system
to refrain from that illegal act.
For the avoidance of doubt, Prof. Andy Ofori-Birikorang, during the
said programme, gave some useful advice to students who had rented
hostels within communities around campuses of the University and who had
gone home to some remote locations that made it challenging for them to
access internet for their active participation in the UEW-LMS Moodle
He advised that such students could come back to their off-campus
rented hostels where the telecommunications network is better in order
to access the Moodle system in which access had been made free through
the MTN and VODAFONE whitelisting of the UEW-LMS.
According to the Management “Nowhere did the Pro-Vice-Chancellor
state that students could come back to our campuses for purposes of
engaging in any teaching and learning activities”
It added that the closure of the University, particularly for all
academic activities, was at the instance of President Akufo-Addo and the
University remains so closed for such purposes. Students are not
allowed to use the classrooms, offices, and other UEW facilities for the
purpose of teaching, learning and all other related academic
Management advises students who have moved back to their off-campus
rented hostels around any of our campuses to take advantage of the
excellent telecommunication network access within such communities to
actively participate in the online teaching and learning activities
while observing all the publicised precautionary measures for the
containment of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
