President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will deliver this year’s State of the Nation Address on February 28, 2023, barring any developments.
The president’s action will be in accordance with Article 67 of the 1992 Constitution, which requires a sitting president to address Parliament at the start of each legislative house session and before the house is dissolved.
The scheduled event was announced by Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, the majority leader of parliament and minister of parliamentary affairs, during a special interview on the morning program Nyansapo on Kumasi-based OTEC 102.9 FM on Monday, February 13, 2023.
If nothing alters from the agreed-upon plan, President Akuffo Addo will give a message on the State of the Nation on February 28, 2023, he informed Captain Koda, the show’s host.
The president uses a State of the Nation Address to highlight accomplishments of the government, discuss obstacles faced, and lay out development plans for the upcoming fiscal year in addition to outlining the government’s primary policy goals and deliverables for the following year.
He did, however, clarify that the ceremony was delayed since this year’s session of parliament started at a little different hour.
“The president normally presents SONA in the middle of February, but we had to change the usual schedule because parliament for the first time since the fourth Republic, Parliament begun its sessions in February instead of the January “.
