PRESIDENT NANA Akufo-Addo will deliver his first State of the Nation address on Tuesday, February 21 after resuming office on January 7 this year.
In a letter addressed to the Speaker of Parliament, the President made his intentions known to parliament as required by Act 67 of the 1992 Constitution.
The State of the Nation address will present to Ghanaians how the economy and other sectors in the country is faring and what was left behind by the erstwhile government.
“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 is also expected to outline his vision for the development of the country for the next fiscal year.
President Akufo-Addo, after winning the 2016 presidential elections on the back of his campaign message of “change” and leading Ghana to a better future, was sworn into office on January 7, 2017.
