Some have criticized the President’s decision, arguing that he should have worn a Kente cloth or other traditional Ghanaian attire to represent the country’s culture on the international stage. Others have defended his choice, pointing out that he was attending a formal event and that a suit is an appropriate choice for such occasions.

Despite the divided opinions, one thing is clear: President Akufo-Addo and his wife, Rebecca, were a striking sight at the coronation. Rebecca’s colourful Kente dress radiated the colours of Ghana and added a touch of tradition to the President’s Western outfit.

It is worth noting that the decision to wear traditional attire or Western clothing is a personal choice. There is no one-size-fits-all rule when it comes to dress codes for important events like a coronation ceremony. What is most important is that the outfit chosen is appropriate for the occasion and reflects the individual’s personal style and identity.

For the most part, while some Ghanaians may have been disappointed that President Akufo-Addo did not wear traditional attire to the coronation of King Charles III, it is important to remember that his decision was a personal one. Regardless of what he wore, the President and his wife represented Ghana well, showcasing the country’s vibrant culture and unique identity. Ultimately, what matters most is that Ghanaians continue to celebrate and promote their rich cultural heritage, whether it is through traditional or Western clothing.
