“I don’t see politics as an end in itself, I see politics as a means to an end and that is why recently I advised students at the University of Cape Coast that you have to have a career first before you think about politics.
I don’t think politics should be a career it should be a place of service, going there to use the talent God has given to you to the benefit of humankind. And that is when you get satisfaction.”
