Wontumi was in the news recently when he said it’s not true that he struggles to express himself well in the Queen’s English.
The maverick politician and businessman said his proficiency in English is flawless therefore he says no one should have qualms with his ability to express himself.
Wontumi added that even if that’s the perception most people have about him, the most important thing is that he still manages to hold conversations and communicates well to make money.
Reiterating that he studied General Arts in Secondary School during his days in the prestigious Prempeh College, Wontumi disclosed that the student who used to top his General Arts class was now a police officer [working for the state to pay him] while he (Wontumi) was in business [working paying himself].
