A display of pettiness and hatred by President of Ghana against his predecessor. Watch how he shook hands with the others and how he did so with former President Mahama. This was at an international peace program. God save Ghana from this vindictive President. pic.twitter.com/oG3yj7DMvd

This is how intolerant @NAkufoAddo can be. How did we even allow a person like this to be Prez.? #wotw3
Mahama will continue to give Ghanaians reasons why he should return to the seat of Govt. pic.twitter.com/uymDqBTjc6
