The GHANAIAN TIMES  is concerned about the needless violence recorded at some registration centers which should be under security protection for voters. The paper is baffled that instead of registrants comporting themselves and peacefully going through the exercise to give the country a clean and acceptable register, some are rather engaging in violence and incessant attacks. The Times is worried that political parties are contravening the code of conduct they signed to disband political vigilantism. In view of this,the paper urges the EC and  security agencies to beef up security at the various hotspots across the country to deal with the thugs in accordance with the law. The paper also appeals to the political parties to call their supporters to order and dissociate themselves from such violent acts by them.

The DAILY GRAPHIC calls on Police to mend bridge with the Gbewaa Palace. Last week the Overlord of Dagbon ordered the Yendi Divisional Police Commander to leave Yendi. To the Paper the issue is a disturbing one as details of what prompted the order is not immediately known as both the Gbewa Palace and the police are tight lipped over the matter. The Graphic is nevertheless happy that the Police Administration has asked to swiftly resolve the matter. The Graphic says it is concerned about this unfortunate development and it is its hope that the issue will be resolved amicably without negatively impacting on the goodwill and respect that exist between the Gbewaa Palace and the Police Administration. The Paper says policing is a shared responsibility and so the police needs the support of the people in the discharge of their duties and vice versa.
