President Akufo-Addo’s 2024 state-of-the-nation address handing-over speech — Hopeson Adorye

In a candid assessment of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s state-of-the-nation address (SONA), Hopeson Adorye, a former New Patriotic Party (NPP) communicator, boldly characterized it as the President’s “handing-over speech.”

Adorye expressed his conviction that the address marks the political transition of the NPP into opposition, asserting, “It is his last State of the Nation Address, and it is this same State of the Nation Address that is taking them into opposition. So it is a handing-over State of the Nation Address.”

Adorye went on to underscore his belief that the NPP faces insurmountable odds in securing victory in the upcoming 2024 elections. “They cannot win the 2024 election no matter what,” he emphasized, suggesting a grim outlook for the party’s electoral prospects.

When questioned about the potential candidacy of NPP’s Mahamudu Bawumia in the 2024 elections, Adorye drew parallels with the previous election, stating, “Mahama lost by over one million votes as an incumbent. So, Bawumia will be trounced convincingly. Bawumia will end up with 39%.”

These remarks hint at Adorye’s skepticism about Bawumia’s chances, predicting a challenging electoral landscape for the NPP.

As President Akufo-Addo delivers his final SONA today, February 27, Adorye’s assertions add a layer of intrigue to the political landscape, framing the address not just as a report on the nation’s status but as a symbolic moment with potential implications for the future trajectory of the NPP.
