The Daily Graphic expresses worry about the widespread notion that foreigners are the major players in the economy, a development that is of concern to most Ghanaians. The paper explains that the current structure of the economy where almost every critical sector is largely controlled by foreign entities is risky for the long term sustenance of the economy. It therefore calls for a national strategy on economic empowerment to strengthen local businesses and entrepreneurs, to operate successful enterprises that will play significant roles in national development. The paper says it is time for government to set out deliberate policies and interventions that will increase indigenous ownership of the economy.

The Ghanaian Times is happy that President Akufo–Addo has echoed the position of Ghana on the issue of LGBTQI which has sparked a global debate recently. The Paper says while some people in the Western world think it is a human rights issue and so they must be allowed to practice such unnatural sexual acts, others in Africa, especially Ghana, do not want to entertain it. It explains that the acceptance of certain practices in the Western world is driven by human rights and law rather than traditional societal norms especially morality and religion as in the case of Ghana. The Times therefore lauds President Akufo-Addo’s stance on the LGBTQI issue and appeals to Ghanaians to let their minds be at peace.
