I Have Dead Goat Syndrome – Prez Mahama

President John Mahama said he will not shaken by the many strike actions and demonstration from labour unions.

President John Mahama has warned that he will not be shaken by the threat of strikes from labour unions as the country approaches the 2016 Election.

"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 said.

President Mahama was speaking to members of the Ghanaian commuity in Botswana.

The Trades Union Congress was one of the many workers' unions who hit the streets last year to protest the worsening economic and power crisis.

The President said such demonstrations are part of strategies by workers' groups to tie the hands of Government, especially in election years.
