Ghanaian Local Languages Learning other languages is important

I have been receiving wrong calls from people from different ethnic groups due to the sexy nature of my phone number.

Amongst the people from various ethnic groups, I get more of such calls from the Ewes especially people who appear very decent mature women.

Anytime I get such calls and they begin the pleasantries in Ewe, my response is 'madakuku wrong line 3sia'.

But as the saying goes, 'every day for thief man, one they for the master". I gave my routine response to one decent woman but was unlucky this time.

She delved into detail thinking I could understand and respond appropriately but poor me.

Let's learn other people's languages to have that commodity of unity in diversity which is an important ingredient for national development.
