Afenyo Markin’s Comedy Of Errors In Full Display Again In Court


In the recent past, players of school football teams who committed avoidable mistakes on the field of play were brought to the touchline and whipped by their coaches. As a result, the number of canes a player who missed a penalty shot or a glorious scoring opportunity, particularly, where there was no goalkeeper in the goal post, could be anybody’s guess. The faith of such a player was the exact faith of Afenyo-Markin at the Winneba High Court on Wednesday, 18th December, 2019.

Afenyo-Markin was virtually offered a penalty in extra-time with the goalkeeper, having earlier been shown the red card. The sole duty to take the penalty and score an obvious goal, rested on the weak shoulders of Afenyo-Markin.

However, for whatever reasons known only to Afenyo-Markin, he woefully wasted the glaring opportunity, and the ‘referee’, in this instance, the Presiding Judge, would go on to school Afenyo-Markin on how to put away such a chance with ease.

Afenyo-Markin had earlier filed a notice of appeal against the ruling of the court which had dismissed his objection to the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Pro-VC) election of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW).
He subsequently filed a motion for stay of execution to stop the Pro-VC election from going ahead.
Ironically, these processes were served on the university Librarian, who failed to pass same to the Vice-Chancellor (VC) and the Registrar.

Consequently, at the date of hearing the application, the University had not filed any affidavit in opposition. It was after the court had heard the arguments of Afenyo-Markin alone, that it adjourned the matter to 18th December, 2019, for ruling. It was after Afenyo-Markin’s vain arguments in court, that the court process previously served on the university Librarian, was forwarded to Counsel for the University, who quickly filed an affidavit in opposition to the application on behalf of the University.

On the date of the ruling, the Presiding Judge, Her Ladyship Justice Janapare Bartels Kodwo, indicated clearly that her ruling did not take cognizance of the University’s affidavit in opposition, because it was filed late. Therefore, her ruling was based purely on the merits of the application for the stay of execution filed by Afenyo-Markin.

In the legal reasoning of the Presiding Judge, the event which Afenyo-Markin’s application sought to stay was moot, because the said event had already occurred. In short, the University had already elected a Pro-VC in the person of Professor Andy Ofori-Birikorang who had been confirmed by its Governing Council. In her Ladyship’s opinion, the application before her was therefore totally misdirected. She consequently dismissed the application.
The ruling left Afenyo-Markin’s rented press in utter disappointment.

This brings to about ten (10), the number of applications lost in succession at the law courts by Afenyo-Markin and his cohorts.

There is a saying that: “The memory of the dead is a warning to the living”. Therefore, stemming from this proverb, a clear warning is being sent out to the busybodies out there, who have no faith in God, and who are basically fighting the Will of God by myopically believing that they have an iota of chance of derailing the unstoppable administration of Rev. Fr. Prof. Afful-Broni, the undisputed Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the University of Education, Winneba (UEW).

Free advice for the unemployed layabouts out there, who are paid peanuts to front as public spirited persons, and append their signatures to frivolous and vexatious suits against UEW!!
