“French as a second language is disrespectful to our pride and culture, it is bad enough that our first language is another person’s language.

What is wrong with making one of our local languages our first language? We can encourage ourselves to learn more foreign languages like Chinese, Spanish and French.

My problem is with making it a second language when we have local languages dying”, he stated.

This assertion by Okyeame Kwame comes after the Foreign Affairs Ministry disclosed that Ghana will adopt French as a second official language.

According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, Ghana’s decision to make French its second official language will improve regional integration especially when Ghana has French-speaking neighbour.

However, the ‘Made in Ghana’ hitmaker disagrees with such decision and hopes that any local language can be adopted as Ghana’s second official language.
