The perception that only English speakers are lite

If you are not literate in English you are very limited in what knowledge you can gain. The knowledge of humanity in all subjects that forms the basis of the human advancement is not written in Twi or Ga or any other vernacular. So, yes, like it or not, if you are not literate in English you are not literate at all. Even French, German or other such languages are limited compared to the knowledge available to you through English. So rather we need to promote English. Unless of course we wish to retrogress, as is happening due to ignorance of English and illiteracy. What will reading Twi or Ga teach you compared to English? Even Chinese try to learn English as well as all other people so as to not be cut off from knowledge and discovery in science and every other knowledge. Then look at what some fool prof is saying in Ghana. We just want to go backwards. That's our problem. We wish for primitive days. And if we continue as we are doing we will get exactly that.
