Nana Akufo-Addo will on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, deliver his first State of the Nation address as President of Ghana.
This will be on the floor of parliament in accordance with article Article 67 of the Constitution.
Nana Akufo-Addo in a letter addressed to the speaker of Parliament, notified the house of his intention to deliver the address in the next two weeks.
“Pursuant to and as required by article 67 of the constitution, I wish to notify you that I intend to deliver a message on the state of the nation on February 21, 2017. Please accept Mr Speaker, the assurance of my highest esteem and best wishes,” excerpts of Akufo-Addo’s letter read.
The President’s address is expected to present an outlook of the state of the various sectors of the country’s economy as inherited from the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) government led by John Mahama.
