Former presidents Jerry John Rawlings and John Dramani Mahama have once again stirred controversy after appearing to share yet another ‘troublesome’ handshake.

The two ex-presidents have rarely been seen engaging each other in public, with reports suggesting they are not on the best of terms.

Rawlings has particularly been very critical of Mahama and has previously jabbed the NDC flagbearer on many occasions.

Both men were, however, present to observe the traditional one-week ceremony of the late Dr. Kwabena Adjei, a former Chairman of the NDC.

However, the moment that caught the attention of many people was the handshake shared between Rawlings and Mahama.

While both men exchanged pleasantries, they appeared not interested in the handshake as each was captured looking elsewhere.

A photo captured of the said handshake also shows both men putting up stern faces, rather than smiling.

In 2018, talks of the two-ex-presidents being at loggerheads surfaced after they appeared to have exchanged a cold handshake during the thanksgiving service to mark the Silver Jubilee of Ghana’s Fourth Republic.

In a video that went viral, Rawlings was captured rushing his handshake and by passing Mahama without smiling or uttering a word to him.
