Akufo-Addo steals show at Ya-Na’s coronation with special outfit (Photo)

The coronation of the new Ya-Na, Abukari Mahama II, is currently underway at the Gbewa Palace in Yendi, with President Nana Akufo-Addo stealing the show with his grand entry to the durbar grounds.

As expected, Akufo-Addo came with a convoy and was always going to make a notable impression, but he went further to surprise those present with his special outfit for the special occasion. In a photo sighted by YEN.com.gh, Akufo-Addo was spotted in a Dagomba smock (batakari as it is called locally), with smock trousers.

The president went further to match the cream smock with brown leather (skin) shoe akin to that of a northern elder.

While this may not be the first time the president has worn a ‘batakari’, it is clearly the first time he has worn it ‘top and down’ and even complemented it with footwear from the north. Moreover, the swagger with which he strode around in the Dagomba traditional dress was a spectacle to behold and Akufo-Addo himself was full of smiles.
