President Akufo-Addo and former President John Dramani Mahama are on the front lines of social media trends after a video of their handshake during the recently held Peace and Security Forum at the Kofi Annan International Peace Keeping Centre (KAIPC).
As usual Ghanaian controversial Counselor, Cyril George Carstensen Lutterodt has reacted to the video giving his own interpretation different from many think.
According to him in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com the counselor said that both great men consult their spiritual backings before shaking hands.
He added that the spiritual directions account for the quick blushing handshake that most often occur between the pair.
In the video making rounds on social media, President Akufo-Addo was welcoming dignitaries to the Kofi Annan Peace and Security Summit in Accra last 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.
