Genuflection or bowing of the knee is regarded as a sign of great respect shown to an elderly. However, it is permissible to bow when meeting someone, whether the person is a scholar or a distinguished personality.

But most often, such gestures are barely practiced among Ghanaians politicians because; each regards him or herself as a “guru” in the game of politics.

Nevertheless, two-time presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), over the weekend, publicly displayed such gesture to the party’s former leader, Ex-President John Agyekum Kufour.

Despite accusations that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is “arrogant”, he showed that a natural-born leader knows how to bow down before his political elder irrespective of their differences.


Nana Addo and Ex-president Kufour finally shake hands.
During the celebration of his 70th birthday and a thanksgiving service at Ridge Church Accra, Nana Addo who was exchanging greetings with dignitaries, opted to rather bow before the former president despite Kufuor’s attempt to shake his (Nana Addo) hands.

To some members within the elephant fraternity, Nana Addo’s humility and self-effacement act before the former president is sure to go a long way in nullifying the haughty tag hanged around his neck by his political opponents and deflate the notion that there is bad blood between the two.
