Controversial journalist, Manasseh Azuri Awuni has jumped to the defense of the bodyguard of President Akufo-Addo who shoved an old man who attempted to shake the hands of the President during one of his regional tours.





The bodyguard was seen in a video making rounds on social media forcefully pushing a middle-aged man who attempted to shake the hands of the President.
