Counsel to President Akufo Addo, Kow Essuman is using his twitter handle to call on Ghanaians to not be swayed by former President Mahama’s pretence to care about their plight, in the run up to the December 7 2020 polls.
The lawyer opined Mr. Mahama is still a dead goat who is only pretending to care for Ghanaians because he needs their votes in order to become the 6th President of Ghana under the 4th Republic democratic dispensation.
He tweeted, “A “dead goat” is someone who does not care no matter how much you complain. That was Mahama. He didn’t care how much Ghanaians complained about their difficulties. Today, because he is desperate for power, he is pretending to care. Ghanaians are wise. #StillADeadGoat.”
Former President Mahama introduced the “dead goat” term in the Ghanaian political discourse, describing himself as someone who cannot be bothered by the many industry strikes and complains against some decisions he took. This attitude largely contributed to his defeat in the 2016 polls.
As a result of this, Mr. Mahama appears repented as his recently launched “People’s Manifesto” and “Rescue Mission” agenda captures hope for the people.
In fact, the launch of the manifesto sent shivers down the spine of the ruling New Patriotic Party who have already begun implementation of some ideas fronted by Mahama.

It is therefore not surprising that the president’s lawyer chose to use this path as campaign against the former president.
