The Daily Graphic commends the Ghana Health Service for its effective surveillance in Tamale that made it possible for the timely detection of the Poliovirus type 2 outbreak. The paper expresses worry that the virus has reared its ugly head after Ghana celebrated 10 years of polio free status in April this year. The Graphic applauds the Ghana Health Service together with its partners for initiating actions to identify the possible source of infection and determine the extent of geographical spread.
The Daily Graphic calls on government to accept the concerns of demonstrators in good faith, in the wake of a number of demonstrations in the past week. The Times points to the anti-new parliament chamber campaign, the “KUM YEN PREKO” demonstration and the massing up of angry contractors at the Ministry of Roads and Highways to demand payments for contracts that were executed, which were all violence free. It commends the level of maturity exhibited in all these events in making their demands. The paper is hopeful that government in its efforts to move the nation forward, would continue to take on board the varied opinions of Ghanaians.
