Leader of the NDC Caucus in Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu

Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu has expressed displeasure with the content of the State of the Nation Address (SONA) delivered by President Akufo-Addo on Wednesday.

According to him, the address did not reflect the realities of the current state of the nation.

Speaking on the floor of the Parliament, the Tamale South MP, before seconding the motion for the House to accept and debate the address, said President Akufo-Addo shied away from talking about the difficulties being experienced by Ghanaians and rather continued giving promises.

“We h­ave heard His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. We expected him to deliver the true state of the Nation Address which will reflect the growing hardships and suffering of the Ghanaian people.”

“Regrettably, Mr. Speaker, he, himself, today does not have the confidence even to talk about the economy or the state of the Ghanaian economy. He is continuing with his promises and slogans.”

“Is the President willfully downplaying the hardship reality?” he asked.
