President Akufo-Addo is set to deliver the State of the Nation Address (SONA) in Parliament today, February 27, 2024.

This is per Article 67 of the 1992 Constitution, which states that the President shall deliver a message on the State of the Nation to Parliament at the start of each session and before the dissolution of Parliament.

It will be President Akufo-Addo’s penultimate address to Parliament because his term of office ends in 2024.

The SONA serves as a means for the President to provide an overview of the current state of the nation.

The SONA is expected to touch on many aspects of the economy, including infrastructure, economic recovery programme, peace and security, education and the upcoming 2024 elections.

The President is also expected to provide an update on major policies and programmes in the past seven years, including the Free Senior High School (SHS) initiative, Planting for Food and Jobs (II), as well as the One District, One Factory (1D1F) initiative.
