President John Dramani Mahama is expected to give his last state of the nation address on Thursday barring any last minute hitch.
According to the Deputy Director of Public Affairs of Parliament, Kate Addo in an interview with Citi News, Mahama’s address will herald the end of the life of the 6th Parliament of the fourth Republic, which would officially be dissolved on January 6, 2017.
He will also use the opportunity to outline his key achievements during his tenure of office.
“…On Thursday, we have the State of the Nation Address which is a constitutional requirement of the President as per Article 67 of the 1992 constitution. Then on Friday at midnight, the House stands dissolved, so the life of the sixth Parliament will come to an end on the midnight of the sixth. Minutes after the life of the sixth parliament stands dissolved, the next one is activated by the inauguration ceremony that will take place on the midnight of the seventh,” Madam Addo said to Citi News on Tuesday.
