In solemn attendance were the Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Aaron Mike Ocquaye, the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu and the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
The picture goes to prove that a lot that actually goes on in governance than what is seen under the flashing lights of the cameras.
There are some events that sneak into the silent scenes that nobody gets to see. In the iconic picture, the Majority Leader was seen peering elsewhere as the prayer was going on.
Dr Mahamudu Bawumia bowed gently and crossed his hands in front of him in a calm and solemn mood. This is rather interesting considering the fact that he a Muslim.
The Speaker of Parliament stood straight in a typical prayer-warrior pose as Ken Ofori-Atta calmly put up his hands to say the spiritual words before the great event.
