The Ghanaian Times shares in the sentiments of the Coalition of Civil Society Organisations, and adds its voice to their call for the immediate dissolution of all vigilante groups. It says although this is not the first time the call has been made, it thinks it is in the right direction. The paper therefore commends the CSOs for taking the first step in calling for the ban and wishes other organisations such as faith based and traditional authorities would join hands with them to exert pressure on the political parties. The Times calls on all political parties in whose name these vigilante groups operate to disband them to stop them from causing any further mayhem. It says, the police and other security agencies must now take up the challenge by demonstrating they are on the side of the people by arresting and prosecuting the hoodlums.

The Daily Graphic lauds the Council of State for being proactive, adding that engagements between the Council of State and the Minister of Trade and Industry on how to address the concerns of the business community and the public on high import duties at the ports are timely. The paper believes the engagements were necessary in view of the impact high cost of imports is having on the operations of local industries and the business community at large. It is the fervent hope of the Graphic that the discussions will end conclusively for the implementation to commence before the mid-year review of the 2019 budget.
