The Ghanaian Times is worried that the security situation seems to be worsening particularly at this time when the country is preparing for a major election. The paper says it is worrisome that the people are becoming anxious and confidence in the security agencies is waning to the extent that they are arming themselves as a means of protection. The Times says these are not good signs because proliferation of arms, if not controlled, can spiral out of control and present its own security challenges. The Times says the security apparatus would fully appreciate the current malaise which is becoming rooted and a nightmare for majority of the people. As the paper sympathises with the police who it says are handicapped, it calls on government to increase support for them. It also urges the police to up their game so as not to lose public confidence.
The Daily Graphic encourages women to regularly conduct self-breast examination at home and consult health facilities for better analysis. It says statistics from WHO indicate that in 2019, an estimated 2.1 million new cases of breast cancer and 627,000 deaths from breast cancer were recorded worldwide. The paper, therefore, calls for concerted effort in tackling breast cancer issues. Absorbing the cost of treatment, the paper thinks will help the country to get an accurate cancer registry for adequate research to be conducted into particular types.
