It is believed that his actions are transcribed to the fears surrounding Coronavirus.
President Akufo Addo instead of shaking hands, bowed to each dignitary present including the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Dr. Keith Christopher Rowley.
Many other dignified executives have been tagged with a like action.
