The Majority Leader and Chairman of the Business Committee of Parliament, Mr Alban Bagbin, announced this in Parliament last Friday, where he indicated that the delivery of the message on the State of the Nation was in accordance with Article 67 of the Constitution.
Hon. Alban Bagbin, was also at the house presenting the business statement for next week, and called on Members of Parliament (MPs) to be punctual to the event in the House.
The president, John Dramani Mahama is expected to inform the nation on the state of the country’s economy, healthcare, education, power, social services and other sectors, and outline steps being taken by his government to address the challenges facing the country.
The President is also expected to deliver a message on the financial commitment to the Electoral Commission (EC) to ensure free, fair and credible presidential and parliamentary elections on November 7, 2016.
It is no doubt that Thursday’s message on the State of the Nation will be the last for President Mahama in his first four-year term as the country prepares to go to the polls on November 7, 2016.
