Some Social media users have tried to give a political meaning to a gesture made by an Asante Kotoko player as a support for the National Democratic Congress Presidential candidate H.E John Dramani Mahama ahead of the December 7th polls.
Asante Kotoko were returning to Ghana following a CAF Champions League qualification tie against FC Nouadhibou of Mauritania (1-1) last Sunday and one of the Kotoko players was spotted at the airport making the two-finger gesture.
The two-finger salute is a normal gesture people normally make and it has different meanings depending on the circumstance but in Ghana, ahead of the 7th December elections, the V-sign or the two-finger sign is translated to mean support for John Mahama, the NDC candidate.
Incumbent President of the land H.E Nana Akufo-Addo, on the ticket of the National Patriotic Party, takes the first place on the ballot paper whilst H.E John Dramani Mahama of the NDC occupies the number two.
