The President, John Dramani Mahama, will set the tone for political discourse in the country and the way forward in a live broadcast on GTV at 8pm today.
As the nation gears up for the 2012 general elections, the President will use the occasion to speak on how politics in the country can be conducted with a sense of decency, civility and decorum.
A highly-placed source at the Presidency told the Ghanaian Times yesterday, that the high point of President Mahama’s address would be to thank Ghanaians for their support, love and encouragement during the difficult moments of the funeral of President John Evans Atta Mills.
“He will use the occasion to conscientise and to whip up the ‘can-do spirit’ in Ghanaians,” the source also stated, but stopped short as to whether the President’s address would also touch on the economy.
President Mahama’s address to the nation on GTV would be the first since he became President on July 24, following the demise of President Mills.
