Ghana is a nation with a variety of cultural traits. Our geography primarily determines our culture.
The smock – Fugu – is a dress code attributed to the people of Northern Ghana. It is worn on solemn occasions and represents strength, courage, and leadership.
Today, Ghanaians wear the Fugu on a daily basis to harness its attributes. As a regal garment, leaders wear Fugu for battle. #StrengthCourageLeadership
