The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the privately-run African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU) says Rev. Dr. Alvin E. Attah still enjoys the confidence of the Board.
According to a release, Rev. Attah remains the President of AME University.
The AMEU Board of Trustees said it has learned and read with grave concern a story carried in the Friday, 17 February 2023 edition of a local newspaper alleging that Rev. Attah had resigned as AMEU president.
According to the release signed by the Chairman of the AMEU Board of Trustees, the Board denies categorically that it has received any letter of resignation from its President, Rev. Attah.
“As such, the Board has not acted on any such … non-existing letter of resignation by the President of AMEU, even more, disconcerting is the further allegation made by the newspaper in the referenced news story that the AMEU has already commenced seeking applications for a new President to conduct the affairs of the University,” the release said.
Additionally, it noted that the policy-making body of the University would also have to meet to discuss any acceptance of the alleged and speculative resignation letter of the
President of the University to make decisions on any further course of action needed.
“The publication was made in the absence of any evidence of a meeting having been held by the Board of Trustees of the AMEU to discuss any of the issues stated,” it noted.
It said one would have expected that the local daily would have investigated the matter of such speculation since there was no evidence to support the assertions made in the news story.
