"I stopped the sympathiser thing long ago…I am a card bearing member of the NPP," he added.

Speaking on the introduction of new courses in public universities, he said universities veered off their core mandate for which they were established in order to raise revenue.

"It is quite clear that many universities have evolved over the years and in so doing, they have left behind the original mandates for which they were established. University of Cape Coast was originally for science education, [University of Ghana], Legon started as a liberal arts institution. They eventually tended to roll out science and engineering programmes from their own experience," he said.
