Ashanti Regional Chairman of the National Patriotic Party (NPP) Bernard Antwi Boasiako known best as Chairman Wontumi has revealed that those who speak fluent English are yet to be rich after being criticized for his bad utterances in the English language.
Chairman Wontumi speaking in an exclusive interview on Wontumi TV disclosed that improving his English vocabulary will not give him any advantage in the overseeing of his businesses because his native language Akan is enough to see him through all his business objectives.
According to Chairman Wontumi in a recent report, he disclosed that the mere speaking of the English language does not create wealth and that is why most Ghanaians who speak good English have eventually contributed nothing to the development of the nation.
He added that we have a lot of intellectuals who pride themselves as excellent communicators in English and have even written books using their knowledge in the white man’s language but they are still living in poverty.
“The type of work I do does not require that, I wear a tie or suit to make money. Mine is to dirty my hands before feeding myself and family” he concluded.
