“I spent 6 years [1968-1974] at KNUST, and in those days things were very good. I remember when we went for our practical attachments. When we came back, they would pay us allowances. Students would use their allowances – the guys would go and buy stereo systems and make a lot of noise in their rooms. Girls would go and buy high heels and put on new shoes and new dresses. Those days were good days for university students, but by the time I was leaving the university there was a coup and things changed.”
