Alban Bagbin, the speaker of Parliament ditches the cloak of the speaker and resort to wearing traditional regalia to Parliament.
The speaker describes the cloak worn by speakers as aristocratic and that he would only wear it for ceremonial purposes.
He said “You may be seeing me more in traditional dresses. I may use that [the cloak] only for ceremonial occasions, which is what is in the literature of Ghana concerning that cloak and gown.
“We also have to provide the market for our produce. We cannot always rely on what others manufacture and sell to us when we are capable of manufacturing even better ones.”
