Social media users 'charge' on Akufo-Addo following 'handshake snub' video

Video Archive

Social media users are not sparing President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo after the emergence of a video of him subtly avoiding a ‘proper’ handshake with Former President John Dramani Mahama on several social media platforms.

Former President John Mahama and President Akufo-Addo have over time, been captured in several videos and photos, chatting, and interacting heartily, sometimes, exchanging a few words and laughing.

A trending video circulating on social media, however, portrays a somewhat ‘different’ situation and raises questions about the current relationship between the two.

The President appeared to have somewhat given a rather unusually brief handshake to his ‘contender’ when he went round to shake hands with dignitaries present at the maiden edition of the Kofi Annan Peace and Security Forum Wednesday, September 4, 2019.

It appeared as though the former President was ‘skipped’ with the pleasantries; his demeanor with the persons just before and after the former president has raised eyebrows of several Ghanaians.

While some are questioning the ‘hurried nature of the handshake, others seem to suggest that the two may be ‘avoiding each other’.
