President Akufo-Addo and former President John Dramani Mahama are on the frontlines of social media trends today after a video of their handshake made it online.
In the video making rounds on social media, President Akufo-Addo was welcoming dignitaries to the Kofi Annan Peace and Security Summit in Accra, on Wednesday.
The president greeted everyone with a smile and lingered on for conversations that lasted a couple of seconds.
However, when the president got to John Mahama, he shook his hands briefly and awkwardly moved on to chat with the next guest.
Many Ghanaians were not so fond of the president’s gesture towards the former head of state.
