The president's speech was deemed 'statesman-like" by members of parliament on sides of the aisle and other top dignitaries who attended the SONA at Parliament House.

According to Rawlings' accusers, everyone stood up as a sign of respect to Mahama after his speech, but Rawlings allegedly refused to do so.

The development has deepened suspicions that all has not been well between the two men since the NDC lost the December 2016 presidential election.

But aides of Rawlings have strongly denied that he snubbed Mahama.

According to them, the picture shows the former president sitting during prayers.

However, they said when Mahama finished his speech, Rawlings joined the other people in the auditorium to give him a standing ovation.
