The Daily Graphic calls on Government to introduce reforms that will improve transparency and expose Nation wreckers fronting for foreign fishing vessels. This, the paper says will make clear who is benefiting from fishing access, what and how much they are fishing, how much they are paying and what these funds are for. The Graphic urges Government to set deterring fines and fees to prevent consistent loss of revenue in the fishery industry and ensure sustainability and national food security. Such reforms aside shoring up state revenue will help address the worry over capacity in the fleet of foreign trawlers which are ripping apart the ocean. To the paper, this when done, will go a long way to offer massive benefits to the country’s struggling small scale fisheries  sector, which supports jobs and food security for millions of Ghanaians.

The Ghanaian Times advocates strong legal backing for chiefs to deal with issues within some parameters without infringing on the rights of their subjects. This, the paper believes, will help give traditional authorities the impetus to complement political efforts at ensuring law and order. The Times admits that though, the modern system of governance and all the related agencies and institutions like the Police and Court are working, they will be more effective if the traditional system is also highlighted in the scheme of things. This is because certain happenings in the communities such as land disputes that undermine the peace and development can be handled better and expeditiously by the Traditional Rulers than the Court.
