He stated that, they wanted to make sure that the "Made in Ghana" culture was prevalent in the region and thus would soon see the best way to stop staff from wearing Ghanaian wear only as "Friday Wear".

“We want to make ‘made in Ghana’ a culture in the Eastern region. Very soon, in consultation with my RCD, we will decide and take a bold and firm decision to make it compulsory for all our staff; from Monday to Friday, not the Friday wear, but Monday to Friday to put on only made in Ghana,” he said.
