1 Mins read

It seems Akan proverbs have now become the toast of officials of the United States and the United Kingdom.

On Monday, UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, received loud applause when he quoted a popular Akan proverb to drive home his point that the UK remains the choice of trade for Africa.

On Wednesday, the United States Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie Sullivan while thanking all those who have put their shoulders to the wheel for the Security Governance Initiative (SGI) Steering Committee to chalk a lot of success, also quoted an Akan proverb.

She encouraged members not to get weary because “Woforo dua pa a, na yepia wo” to wit, it is when you climb a good tree that we push you.

Watch her video below:
