President Akufo Addo is finally set to deliver the State of the Nation Address in Parliament next week Wednesday.
This is according to Habib Iddrisu, who is the Deputy Majority Whip.
The President was scheduled to appear before the House last three weeks but that constitutional obligation was postponed indefinitely, a situation the Minority described as a breach.
Speaking to JoyNews, Mr. Habib Iddrisu explained that the reason for the postponement was due to its closeness to the 6th March Independence Day Celebrations which he said would have stolen the shine of the President’s message.
He, however, noted that the Presidency is now very ready to deliver the message on the State of the Nation next week Wednesday, and hopefully, there will be no more postponements.
“I’m the Chairman of the Committee in Parliament, that is, the State of the Nation Address Committee of Parliament, and the President will deliver the message on the state of the nation on the 30th, that is next week Wednesday.
“Yesterday, I had a meeting with all the stakeholders in place to be able to see how prepared, and the readiness they are. Yesterday I had a meeting with the state protocol, the Ghana Armed Forces, the Ghana Police Service, the National Fire Service, the National Ambulance Service, National Security, ECG, the Information Service Department, all the key players who are supposed to play any role in terms of the State of the Nation Address.
“Yesterday, we had a meeting and it has been very successful…we understand and we know that the President will come and deliver the message on the State of the Nation,” he said.
