The Daily Graphic expresses the need to help make breast feeding a cultural norm. The call follows the just ended breastfeeding week celebrated in Ghana every August. It says Ghana some time ago was a champion in promoting six months of exclusive breastfeeding as one of the best investments of saving lives which led to the Ghana Health Service designating many hospitals and clinics as baby friendly facilities for actively implementing the guide lines for exclusive breast feeding. The paper is, however, sad to note that such advocacy is no longer in place citing a 63 percent breastfeeding rate in 2008 to 43 percent currently. The Graphic urges stakeholders to help improve the current support systems for exclusive breast feeding especially by creating an enabling environment in the workplaces markets and all public places for women to breast feed.

The Ghanaian Times applauds government’s decision to shut down all witches camps in the country. It says though it welcomes the decision, it believes government and its stakeholders should have dismantled the witches camps many years ago. This follows the recent lynching of Akua Denteh in the Northern Region. The Times says it is in full support of the closure of these so called witches camps which constantly pose a threats to women especially in the north who are approaching old age.

The Daily Heritage comments on GES’s decision to reverse the ban on WASSCE candidates saying it is appropriate. A day after the president’s directive, the GES reverses its decision to ban the said students from writing the WASSCE. The paper says it finds the President’s directive very important because it believes Senior High School is a very crucial stepping stone to a responsible life and that barring the students could be a problem. The Heritage reminds students that in life one reaps what they sow and that they are the future leaders of this country and therefore any negative act such as what happened during the WASSCE should not be repeated.
