The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Bernard Antwi Boasiako otherwise known as Chairman Wontumi has said he is not perturbed about the ridicule by some elements in the opposition National Democratic Congress and a section of the public over a speech he made at the just ended national delegates conference of the party held in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

The NPP at its conference announced the building of an ultra modern office complex in honour of the late Okyeame Baffour Osei Akoto for his immense contribution to the formation of the party.

Chairman Wontumi giving an account on the project as well as welcoming dignitaries and party supporters gathered at the event said work had already begun on the office. He shocked the gathering by speaking the queen’s language since he is noted for speaking twi.

The development has flooded the social media with many making mockery of him that instead of ‘all and sundry,’’ he said ‘’all and sandria’’ throwing his audience into a state of confusion since they could not comprehend.

Speaking in an interview with Ghana Te Sen on Okwawu FM, an Nkawkaw based radio station; Chairman Wontumi said he was not bothered about the mockery since his main preoccupation was to live a wealthy and happy life and not to rattle like the English.

He said English was not his language and it will not put food on his table nor help people in need so if he is unable to speak proper English, he is not worried.

‘’I am well educated, I own Excellence Academy and have employed as well as helped many people so assuming without admitting, if I’m unable to speak proper English, I can’t be worried because English doesn’t give me food. I know this is a shear propaganda being perpetrated by elements of the NDC, but it won’t wash,’’ he said.
