The Ghanaian Times is of the opinion that everyone including voters and political parties, owe it a responsibility to collaborate with the EC to conduct a credible election in December. It says it would not be helpful to advise the EC to conduct a credible election without offering support that would lead to a successful exercise. While the Paper commends political parties and independent candidates for successfully submitting their forms, it urges the EC to also avail itself and engage them in an atmosphere of trust so that together, they can hold a credible, free, fair and peaceful general election.

The Daily Graphic dedicates its editorial to the commemoration of international Day of the Girl Child which was marked yesterday. The Paper asks stakeholders to contribute towards sustainable development of the girl child. It says in view of the fact that females form 50 percent or more of most population, an increase in child marriage will have a negative effect on national development. It says quality education especially for girls and women, has been identified as the most powerful weapon in the global fight against poverty, disease and hunger. However, In Ghana, the Education Service says although gender parity has been achieved at the primary school level, girls still lag behind boys in secondary and tertiary education due to high dropout rates among girls at higher educational levels. The Graphic says the direct contribution of girls education to sustainable development is no longer a debate,for it is well documented that educating girls and women is the single most important investment that yields maximum returns for development.
