The Member of Parliament (MP) for Effutu in the Central region, Alexander Afenyo-Markin has stated the new Vice-Chancellor of the University of Education had already started providing job avenues to residents to ease the economic pressures even before his investiture.

He has therefore urged residents in the area to make good use of the opportunities being offered them as a result.

Afenyo-Markin justified the series of legal actions against former authorities of the school and indicated that his office will not stop the court processes until the Winneba community derives maximum benefits from the university.

The MP who was the legal counsel for the plaintiff Supi Kwayera whose actions led to the dismissal of the former Vice-Chancellor Prof. Mawutor Avoke and five other senior administrative staff, indicated that the court action was already yielding the necessary dividends for the local Winneba community whose interest the plaintiff and himself were seeking.

He also condemned critics who posited that the court action amounted to tribal-witch hunt emphasising that the Winneba community is a cosmopolitan one where tribal tendencies are eschewed because he himself has his roots from the Volta Region.

Mr Afenyo-Markin stated these at a durbar of chiefs and people of the area at Winneba as President Akufo Addo ends his four days tour of the Central Region.
