The Daily Graphic wishes to appeal to all stakeholders to give the authorities the benefit of the doubt and trust that government, through the Ministry of Education, will not put students in harm’s way. The Paper says it totally agrees with parents and share in their fear for the safety of their children in the school environment, which has started recording cases of infection of the virus. But the question is, how prudent is it to let the students go back home?  After all, there is no scientific basis to determine their homes are coronavirus free.  The Graphic believes that allowing the students to stay in the school environment, which is regulated, is a better option than sending them home. To address the issue of the spread of the virus, the Paper is of the view that parents need to be sincere with the school authorities and the GES about their children’s health status to enable the schools to pay attention to those with health condition.

The Ghanaian Times says politics of insults should give way to contest of ideas. The paper believes insults are socially unacceptable behaviours that cause embarrassment and disgrace to the person it is directed at. The Times is worried about how some politicians have grown comfortable in trading abusive words and personal attacks among themselves on media platforms. The Paper applauds President Akufo-Addo for counselling New Patriotic Party (NPP) communicators to ensure this year’s election campaign is devoid of gender, religious and ethnic sentiments, during a virtual meeting with members of the Communications Team over the weekend. The Paper calls for political actors to engage in politics of ideas instead of insults and careless talks, as they do not foster national unity and peaceful co-existence.
