There is wisdom in Akan proverbs, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said.
To demonstrate what sets the UK apart as one of the biggest investors and partners in Africa at the UK-Africa investment summit on Monday, 20 January 2020 in the UK, Mr Johnson quoted the proverb: ‘All the fingers are not the same’, which, in Akan, translates as: ‘Nsatea nyinaa nny3 p3’.
Mr Johnson said he picked up the proverb during his visit in Ghana.
All fingers are not the same... and all countries are not the same”, he said.

Nsatea nyinaa nny? p? : An old Akan proverb was a fitting way for

The UK Prime Minister said: ‘All fingers are not the same’ to explain his point that “all countries are not the same and the UK boast a breadth and depth of expertise that simply cannot be matched by any other nation.”  
Proverbs are one of the rich traditions that build the fabric of life in Ghana. They are wise sayings that are used to season the language of the people to make it more beautiful.
