President delivers his last state of the Nation address to close the 7th parliament

President Nana Akuffo Addo has touted the achievement of his government in pushing forward the development and socio economic level of the lives of all Ghanaian.

According to the president, despite the many setbacks especially with the emergence of Covid-19 in the latter part of his administration, yet, remarkable success had been achieved in most aspects of the economy. Citing the planting for food and jobs, one district one factory, one village one dam initiative and many others, he said the nation was on a trajectory of progress and prosperity.

Addressing parliament and state figures as well as members of the diplomatic corps in his last state of the nation address on Tuesday, President Akuffo Addo implored Ghanaians to continually trust his administration to deliver more.

The presentation is in line with Article 67 of the 1992 Constitution, which states that: “The President shall, at the beginning of each session of Parliament and before a dissolution of Parliament, deliver to Parliament a message on the state of the nation”.

President Akuffo Addo particularly called on traditional leaders and other relevant stakeholders in the society, to join forces to end illegal mining which he admitted was still in active operation thereby endangering the lives of millions of Ghanaians through the pollution of water bodies and other harmful effects.

President Akuffo Addo will on Thursday 7th January 2021, be sworn in for a second term, for another four years, having been declared winner of the 2020 presidential election.

Many dignitaries including fellow African leaders, foreign envoys are expected to be in attendance.

Unlike previous presidential inaugurations, which is mostly held at the black star square, this will be happening from the legislature where limited guests will be in attendance in line with the Covid 19 protocols.
