The Daily Graphic is worried about the involvement of chiefs in politics. It says Chiefs remain the last resort to resolving conflicts and rallying the community together. To the paper, the rule will elude them if they are seen to be partisan adding that for the political actors and citizenry they will find it difficult to seek chiefs intervention if conflicts and disputes arise. As the December 7 elections inch closer and closer, the Graphic trust that chiefs can do better and do the nation a lot good by remaining non-partisan.
The Ghanaian Times joins calls on government to put in place measures to ensure that girls go back to the classrooms when schools reopen so they do not miss out on their future prospects. To the paper, gone are the days when the place of the girl was said to be in the domestic setting. It is now primitive to put barriers on the path of girls and deny them access to education. The Times says there are countless examples of how girls are breaking boundaries posed by stereotypes and exclusion with some making history as female Speakers of Parliament, Chief Justices and even presidential candidates. It says the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 sustainable development Goals adopted by world leaders in 2015 bestows on all a duty not to leave anyone behind. The Times, therefore, appeals that when schools re-open next year the nation should see more girls returning to the classroom and ensure that they are given the chance to live their aspirations.
