President John Dramani Mahama will on Thursday, February 25, 2016, tell Ghanaians how his administration has managed the affairs of the State.
The session will also allow him to solicit an endorsement ahead of the 2016 polls.
His appearance before the House is in fulfillment of a constitutional requirement.
Article 67 of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana states; “The President shall, at the beginning of each session of Parliament and before a dissolution of Parliament, deliver a message on the state of the nation”
President Mahama will be expected to give account of the power crisis, the performance of the various sectors of the economy and international bilateral and multilateral corporations as well as the touchy issue of the transfer of two Yemenis from the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba to Ghana.
Some Ghanaians told Kasapa News that they are expecting the President to call for a reduction in utility tariffs in order to make life comfortable.
