…As President Mahama showcases living witnesses to his socio
-economic intervention policies and programs
The ‘Changing Lives and Transforming Ghana’ policies and programs by President John Dramani Mahama, yesterday were brought to life on the floor of Ghana’s parliament when he delivered his last State of the Nation address under his first term as President.
With barely eight months left on his four-year contract with Ghanaians, President John Dramani Mahama commenced his address with a tribute to late Abuakwa North Member of Parliament, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, describing him as a “gentleman who walked away from every conversation with a smile. JB’s absence in this house is both seen and felt; Ghana has lost a true son.”
Mr. Mahama set the tone for his address by indicating that he would be bridging the gap between policy and the people in fulfillment of his Changing Lives and Transforming Ghana Agenda.
While delivering his address to both sides of the august house, the President introduced what appears to be a novelty, by displaying in the gallery and chamber of parliament, some beneficiaries of his government’s various social intervention policies.
