Ghana-Chief Psychiatrist: labor disturbances = manifestation of mental disorder

Next time someone reaches into their bag of rhetorical tricks and blames social problem X on mental illness Y

You can say "I've heard of a psychiatrist in Ghana that believes the same thing"

Chief Psychiatrist, Dr. Akwesi Osei, has told XYZ News that the current streak of labour disturbances in Ghana, is a manifestation of mental disorder on a national scale.

He said the country is under so much pressure, which is being manifested in diverse ways, including people’s reluctance to negotiate and find resolutions to their differences.

“All these are mental issues…In other people, this distress will manifest as committing suicide, in other people it will manifest as killing other people, homicides; in others it will manifest in various ways; in others, it will manifest as we not being able to sit down to resolve our differences”, he explained.

Public Doctors and Pharmacists have been on strike for the past four weeks without any signs of an end to the impasse between them and the Government.
