The University authorities say Prof. Kuffour died of cardiac complications after he was rushed to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital on the dawn of Friday, February 5.

Dr Bekoe said the late Prof. Kuffour had been involved in the training of traditional medical practitioners across the country and the West African Sub-region.
