The Daily Graphic decries challenges being faced with the port concession agreement which bars the Ghana Port and Harbour Authority GPHA, from operating at the existing MPs Terminal Two for containerized cargo. The paper notes that GPHA has projected that about one thousand four hundred of its permanent employees in Tema and Takoradi will be laid off if the new terminal becomes operational by July 1. The Graphic however is consoled by the assurance of the Chief Executive Officer of MPs that rather than the fear of losing their jobs, the workers should look forward to more jobs in view of the fact that MPs will run 24hrs service and therefore will require more hands to operate effectively.

The Ghanaians Times does not believe the rejection of the upgraded banknotes is widespread but the fact that few people are rejecting it calls for further public education on the roll out of the new notes. It says as a matter of fact, those who are rejecting the new notes claimed not to have any knowledge of the circulation of the new notes. The Paper recognises that advertisements are running in both the print and electronic media but many people may not be aware. The Times urges Bank of Ghana to intensify its public education in markets, lorry parks, hospitals and other places for the benefit of the people. It says it is in the interest of Central Bank as well as the country that the new notes are generally accepted as a medium of exchange for goods and services.
