The Fashionable Sides of Ghana’s Presidents: Nkrumah – Present


In all of Ghana’s 63 years of being an independent country, we have seen many leaders come and go with different governance styles. Not only did they govern differently but they dressed differently as well, each of them bringing a unique style to the presidency.

Kwame Nkrumah
Dr Kwame Nkrumah declared Ghana’s Independence in the iconic Fugu and then governed the new nation in suits, the occasional wrapped Kente and jumper. He also rocked scarves on certain occasions.

General Joseph Ankrah and Lt General Akwasi Amankwa Afrifa
These two iconic military men stuck with their uniform.

Edward Akufo-Addo
He was the king of suits. Never compromising on detail complimenting his looks with accessories.

Ignatius Kutu Acheampong & Lt General Fredrick William Kwasi Akuffo
These two men also rocked military uniforms.

Hilla Limann
Hilla Limann who almost always wore a Fugu with a hat, on very few occasions wore a suit.

Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings
Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings did not just stick to his military uniform. He rocked Kente cloth, suits, simple print shirts. Jerry John Rawlings was the boom in fashion.

John Agyekum Kuffour
John Agyekum Kuffour has two simple but elegant looks a suit or a cloth gallantly wrapped around his shoulder. His stature added to his overall look any time he dressed.

Evans Atta Mills
Evans Atta Mills’fashion sense gave off a sense of peace and calm. Just like his nickname. He usually rocked a ‘top and down’ look, sometimes an occasional suit or Kente.
