The Daily Graphic is not happy about the global survey conducted byTtransparency International on corruption in 2018 which generally considers Africa among the world’s most corrupt places. The paper therefore calls for an African leadership that is ever ready to be committed, accountable, creative and innovative, motivate and inspire others. The paper believes that to achieve these, Africans mus consider establishing institutions that will focus on leadership, policy making, institutional effectiveness and accountability as well as severely punishing graft and corruption.
The Ghanaian Times commends government for issuing commencement certificates to the Northern, Coastal and Middle Belt Development authorities, for the execution of projects.The paper sees this as a giant step by the government to execute the policy promised Ghanaians during the 2016 elections to alleviate poverty. The paper believes that with available resources under the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme, IPEP, and other targeted projects under the District Assemblies Common Fund, Ghana Education Fund and other donor supported projects, the country should be close to satisfying the basic needs of the people to improve their well-being. The Times therefore encourages all to get on board to support the IPEP to succeed.
