News of my wealth grossly exaggerated, says Sam Jonah

Ghanaian business mogul and current chancellor of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), Sir Sam Jonah has said Ghanaians have grossly exaggerated his wealth.

Speaking on the GTV Breakfast Show on Monday (26 September), Jonah said he prefers being associated with his values rather than wealth.

“News of my wealth has been grossly exaggerated. Let me just say that my father will be turning in his grave if he thought that I will be defined by how much I am worth in monetary terms,” he said in a television interview on GTV.

“I will like to be defined by the values that I stand for. I think my worth would come from the values that I hold and the principles that I hold. I want myself to be defined by that than pounds, cedis and pesewas.”

“I think it’s a tragedy people want to be associated with their wealth. There are others who want that but unfortunately, I don’t. One, because I don’t have that level of wealth and two, more importantly, just feel it is crass and it’s not something you should be proud of; that you’re defined by what people think you are worth,” he said.
