President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has for the past weeks been addressing the nation on the government’s efforts in curbing the deadly coronavirus outbreak.
One unique thing about all the addresses is the fabrics he wears. The president always looks dashing in his African prints.
The shirts the president wears during these addresses – eight so far – are not only pleasing, they apparently have unique meanings.
Twitter user EL-DAD @ChristDeKing has for the past weeks taken his time to educate people on the meaning of the various fabrics President Akufo-Addo wears.
Below are some of them:
Fellow Ghanaians, finally the Prez. Nana Addo has wore the fabric everyone is expecting him to wear.
