The Daily Graphic lauds government for keeping its word and being proactive in solving the challenges of the double track system at the second-cycle level. The paper however, urges that the process be followed to the end by ensuring that contractors given the job of completing abandoned structures and beginning new ones are paid in full, so that the jobs are not truncated again. The paper notes that the 2.45 billion cedis is only a third of the 1.5 million dollars being raised by the government and hope the total amount will be realised to ensure seamless return to a single-track system that operated before. The Graphic believes getting the total amount, using 40 percent of inflows into the GETFUND as security, will also ensure that not only second cycle schools but also tertiary institutions benefit from the building of more infrastructure to cater for the anticipated increase in the enrolment due to the free SHS policy.

The Ghanaian Times describes as unacceptable, actions by some irate youth in Salaga who set ablaze the NPP constituency office and vandalised billboards because their town was not chosen as the capital for the newly created Savanna Region.It sympathises with the youth for losing out on their choice of the Capital, and urges the youth, chiefs and opinion leaders in the area to support government by putting their shoulders to the wheel for the good of all. The Times notes that the Savanna Region is a bread basket with huge economic prospects as well as abundant natural resources which when exploited could create jobs and attract investors.

The Daily Heritage  is worried about corruption gaining grounds in the country. It says there are greedy people who aspire to be rich at all costs and others with the innate desire to engage in corrupt deals at the least opportunity even in church. It notes that the dishonest and fraudulent conduct by both politicians and people in the civil service will continue to exist until political leaders put in place pragmatic measures that cut across all state institutions to bring the canker down to its barest minimum. The paper notes that, the zero-tolerance approach and putting behind bars thieves in government are sure ways of making the canker of corruption unattractive to people.
