Mahama's address was an exercise of mediocrity

Nana Akomea said the State of the Nation by President John Mahama was disappointing.


According to him, the President's address did not reflect the true State of the nation rather President Mahama embarked on a propaganda mission in Parliament.

He said the state of the nation address was disappointing.

The President in his address outlined a number of achievements during his last ‘State of the Nation Address’ in his first tenure.

Some of the achievements touted by the President was his claim that 54,800 children in 4 regions have been enrolled into schools under the Compulsory Education program.

This he said was is in fulfillment of a pledge made by government to absolve the cost of secondary education in Ghana.

He said his administration is on course to ensure that printing of learning materials are done locally in order to create about 1, 400 new direct jobs in the Ghanaian businesses.

President John Mahama says about 800 megawatts of power has been added to the country’s energy generation capacity within the shortest period in overcoming the power challenges.

He noted: "It has taken team work and the cooperation of many people to achieve this success."

But Nana Akomea believes the State of the Nation address was "a speech and prize giving day ceremony."

"Every government does one project or the other... every government will build a school, every government will do a road and if you are going to parade Ghanaians who have benefited from a street lighting project and you bring them to parliament to show them to Ghanaians, then it's completely unwealthy," Nana Akomea added.

He has also expressed disappointed in the manner in which President Mahama delivered the address.
