The Ghanaian Times adds its voice to the global campaign demanding that world leaders protect civilians in conflict.  It also urges them to stop violent conflicts to make the world safer for human habitation.  The paper uses the occasion of World Humanitarian Day which falls tomorrow, to condemn air strikes in Temen, which killed more than 50 school children. It regrets the continuous unrest and killing in the Gaza strip and asks that the world be made a safer place. The Times says the global community has what it takes to ensure peace and security in the world and calls for a massive sign up into the digital global campaign hashtag Not A Target which is demanding that world leaders do everything in their power to protect all civilians in conflict.
 
The Spectator supports the proposal by the Minority Leader in Parliament that the maximum and acceptable size of government should be 65 ministers. The paper thinks it is time to set a threshold on the number of ministers that should be appointed by any President. It notes that both members of the ruling NPP and opposition NDC are worried about the huge number of ministers appointed by sitting Presidents, as well as the staff strength at the presidency.  The Spectator therefore urges both the Majority and Minority in Parliament to initiate a reform process to ensure a limit on the number of ministers a president can appoint.
