Greetings in Ghana expresses one’s concern for the other.Failing/refusing to do so may indicate that you do not care for the other’s welfare.
Smiling is also a form of greeting. An effort to learn some greeting words such as ‘Akwaaba’ (welcome ) win hearts here.
Handshake is a popular way of greeting in Ghana.When shaking hands with a number of people, start from the extreme right and proceed towards the left.
The left hand has limited functions in Ghana. The use of the left hand for certain activities is abhorred.This is one reason our men wear traditional cloth throwing the fabric over the left hand. In particular, avoid receiving or giving, waving at people with the left hand. If you are naturally left handed, it is not your fault and it is no offence.
