Photos: 54 moments of Mahama’s 2016 State of the Nation Address

About six hours of national attention on parliament for the State of the Nation Address has been reduced into 54 pictures for your viewing pleasure.

And as usual, GJA 2015 Photojournalist David Andoh was there.

It is the final year of a four-year term but the President has also said it won’t be his last year in government. That would have to be in 2020.

His wife, Lordina Mahama was there too…
