Prez Mahama's SoNA Was An "Excellent Delivery" - Kabila

Former National Youth Organiser of the Convention People's Party (CPP) has commended President John Dramani Mahama for the excellent delivery of his State of the Nation (SoNA) Address this year.

President John Mahama delivered his SoNA last Thursday and pointed out some projects that his administration is undertaking to better the country.

He touched on several sectors of the economy such as the education sector, health, social and sports sectors among others.

On the education sector, President John Mahama told the legislators about some initiatives by his government.

"As a nation, we must and we are creating the necessary opportunities for all children of school going age to have access to quality education. We will continue to deliver social intervention programmes that will sustain access and reduce the cost of education to parents. This year, we will start with the distribution of ten thousand (10,000) locally produced made-in-Ghana school sandals to pupils in selected deprived districts. Six million (6,000,000) textbooks, Five hundred thousand (500,000) pieces of school uniforms, Fifteen million (15,000,000) exercise books, and Thirty thousand (30,000) computers will also be distributed to schools across the country," President Mahama said.

On the health sector, he noted that the government will spend over 3 billion cedis this year to improve the sector.

President Mahama continued to outline his government's approaches to revamping the other sectors.

Commenting on the SoNA on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo', James Kwabena Bomfeh was impressed by the stamina that the President exhibited when he delivered his speech.

He wondered how many Presidents could stand on their feet for several hours to address the nation like President Mahama did.

He also labeled the President's SoNA as an "excellent delivery" and was further buoyed by the current administration's ability to resolve the electricity challenges confronting Ghanaians.

"I need to also recognize that it is indeed true that they’ve been able to solve the electricity problem…but still we feel there is more room for improvement.
