In his final speech, Mahama is expected to highlight the achievements of his government, while urging all Ghanaians to promote unity and harmony, as the new administration takes over.

On the hand, Mr Sam Okudzeto, a former president of the Ghana Bar Association has asked that Mahama use his last speech to apologize to former president and founder of the National Democratic Congress, J.J Rawlings for 'alienating' him during his term as president.

He also said that Mahama should offer an apology to the NDC founder on behalf of his appointees who were 'rude' to Rawlings.

"…Normally if you are leaving office, you may try to apologise to people you may have hurt or harmed … that’s one thing he should do. It is natural. You can never be in office without hurting people,” he said.
