The Daily Graphic highlights the plight of the aged as the world observed elder abuse awareness day. It believes that although elder abuse is not a new phenomenon, nothing much has been done about it to help curb the problem. It believes that ageism and gender inequalities are getting worse during this COVID-19 pandemic, increasing the risk of elderly abuse, neglect, and violence. The paper states that, in this pandemic period, the aged, many of whom are struggling to get two square meals a day, are most vulnerable to the relentless nature of the spread as its impact is affecting them socially, economically and medically as many of them are unable to go for their regular check-ups at health facilities due to fear of contracting COVID-19. The Daily Graphic, therefore, believes that it is about time the country waged a relentless campaign to ensure that challenges related to aging in the country are quickly resolved to ensure that the country is devoid of the scourge.

The Ghanaian Times writes on the Menzgold customers outraged. It says hundreds of Menzgold customers on many occasions in the past protested in different parts of the country demanding retrieval of their monies but to no avail. According to the paper, some even went as far as to demand payment from the Government citing regulatory failures by the Bank of Ghana and allied bodies like the Securities and Exchange Commission, SEC. The paper says, to make matters worse, NAM1 continues to flaunt his wealth around by organizing flamboyant events, many of which the customers justifiably consider offensive. According to the paper, the actions of NAM1, do not show any empathy towards the sufferings of his customers who he has failed to pay in the past several months and he goes ahead to rub salt into their wounds by organising a lavish public event that has gone viral on social media. The Ghanaian Times sympathises with all the customers who are yet to retrieve their investment ad urge state institutions that are handling the case in court to deal with it quickly so that the investors can get their monies back.
