3 things Ghanaians are expecting from President Nana Akufo-Addo's national address tonight.

It’s been 6 months since the novel Coronavirus first hit the shores of Ghana. Many sectors of the nation were hit hard by the pandemic. The country even had to go under a lockdown for some time. However, the tide kept turning for humanity and easing of restrictions started.

In Ghana some sectors of the economy were opened and final year students of the various levels of education were made to go back to school and complete their studies. Second year students of both JHS and SHS will also be resuming school soon.

Tonight Sunday September 20, 2020 at 8:00pm the President, Nana Akufo-Addo will address the nation on the measures taken the spread of the Coronavirus. Ghanaians are optimistic of many things.

Football lovers are anticipating that the president will open the doors for some sporting activities to commence. Indeed, many sports athletes have suffered as a result of the suspension of the games.

However, with many campaigns of close contact and many other meetings with social distance protocols observed many feel the time is fight for sports to resume especially football.

Many will seek to say what the president will say to calm the impending strike of the nurses. It can be recalled that the Ghana Nurses and Midwives Association have given alert of a strike for failure of the government to pay them their allowances. In this COVID-19 era the president definitely has something to say to calm these nurses so they return back to work.

Lastly the president might want to talk about the confusion erupting between the private teachers’ association and the education ministry. The Private schools have been so angry with the government’s decision to push pre tertiary schools to January next year.

They feel this will cripple them. it turned worse when the Education ministry came out to say the private schools have no choice but to comply with the new rules. This has created a lot of back and forth between the two bodies.

What are your expectations?
