The Independent Presidential Candidate in the 2012 presidential election, Jacob Osei Yeboah has described President John Dramni Mahama’s “dead goat syndrome” comment as “unfortunate” and “irresponsible”.
According to him, the president who has been unproductive over the years with an additional “dead goat syndrome” clearly tells that the nation is in danger under his leadership.
Adopting what he calls a dead-goat syndrome, the President said he would not be hoodwinked by such strategies by workers.
"I have seen more demonstrations and strikes in my first two years. I don't think it can get worse. It is said that when you kill a goat and you frighten it with a knife, it doesn't fear the knife because it is dead already.
"I have a dead goat syndrome," he told a Ghanaian population in Botswana where he was on a three-day official state visit.
But in an interview with Peacefmonlone.com, the former presidential candidate also known as Joy2012 urged Ghanaians to pray for the president for making such “suicidal” comment after his NDC led government has failed to fulfill their numerous promises which has left the entire citizenry in real hardship.
Labelling the president as a “fearless” being, he opined that Ghana is at the edge of collapsing since its leader is depressed with issues going on so therefore careless about the progress of the country.
“Dead goat syndrome is a metaphor of fearless and ready suicidal mission. Ghanaians, both Christians and Muslims must pray for the president. For now he has nothing to lose because a dead goat is not afraid of a knife. That man [President Mahama] is already dead…he fears nothing,” he said.
