Professor Fred Binka, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Health and Allied Sciences, says the newly established university has made modest progress in the first four years of its existence.
In an interview with Radio Ghana, he indicated that one of the major challenges is that the university needs clearance every year from the Finance ministry to engage the full complement of lecturers.
Professor Binka says admissions are still in progress for new entrants.
On the strike by lecturers, Pro Binka describes it as unfortunate.
He admits that it is strange that research allowance has been made part of the conditions of service of lecturers because research forms part of the conventional teaching practice.
