MPs dance ‘agbadza’ as Parliament commemorates 30 years of democracy
It is not just another day in Parliament.
Today’s scenes are colorful as the House commemorates 30 years of Ghana’s democracy.
In Parliament on this occasion are statesmen including past and present Speakers and legislators.
Some other special guests were also invited.
A spectacle, however, ensued when the choir performed a musical interlude.
Some MPs could not help but dance heartily to the tune. Ayawaso West Wuogon legislator, Lydia Seyram Alhassan took the lead with the ‘agbadza’ dance.
She was joined by Madina MP Francis-Xavier Sosu and Dzifa Gomashie of Ketu South among other colleagues.

The ‘agbadza’ dance is said to have evolved from an old war dance and is usually performed by the Ewe people of the Volta Region.
