The Daily Graphic is appalled by the situation where school children do not have access to the best educational facilities to enable them to have the peace of mind to study. It says the locking up of completed projects by contractors cannot be allowed to recur, looking at the current state of development especially as school projects are critical for the education of children across the country. The paper says as the country deals with the problem of children studying under trees, the locking up of completed school blocks cannot be allowed to continue otherwise it will not be able to overcome the problem moving children from under trees into decent classroom facilities. The Graphic believes it is high time contractors and government agencies entered into contracts that would not let beneficiary projects under such arrangements suffer. Meanwhile, government agencies such as metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies must ensure that funds are always available before starting any new projects to avoid owing contractors after their completion.

The Ghanaian Times accuses drivers of destroying the Pokuase Interchange even before its completion which may attract extra cost to government. The Paper believes the Pokuase Interchange is an important national asset which must be protected to ensure its longevity due to the fact that it is an international route that links Ghana to the Sahelian regions of Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger. This helps to boost trade between Ghana and those countries and national revenue mobilization. The Times says the Interchange will solve the problem of gridlock on the Ofankor-Nsawam stretch of the Accra-Kumasi highway to ease pressure on the Nsawam stretch and its adjoining communities. In view of this, the Ghanaian Times entreats the Ministry of Roads and Highways to quickly move in and address the issue.
