The Management and Council of the University of Education Winneba has called on Amnesty International Global to take disciplinary action against two of its Board members, Dr. Vincent Adzahlie Mensah and Samuel Agbotsey since they are not pursuing the core mandate of the organization but rather their partisan interest.

He noted that the allegations by Amnesty International which are trending on social media about the institution is baseless and must be treated with utmost disgust by all.
