The Ghanaian Times raises concern about what it describes as a looming danger on the Kaneshie-Odorkor highway. A story published in the Paper yesterday painted a dangerous picture of portions of the road which has deteriorated making it unmotorable and dangerous to road users. The paper is surprised that a major road like the Odorkor highway would be left in such a deplorable state for it to pose a danger to road users. According to the Times, the road, which is a first class international highway, was constructed mainly for road users to ply in comfort but the situation today has turned it into a death trap. The Paper therefore appeals to the Highway Authority, Urban Roads and District Assemblies in the area to take immediate steps to repair the drains and roads to prevent future calamity.
The Daily Graphic is concerned about developments in Mali where the current President Alpha Conde has amended the constitution to enable him stay in power. It says apart from Mali, a constitutional crisis also looms in Guinea and Cote ’Ivoire and it is its hope that diplomatic efforts at bringing sanity to these countries will be stepped up before the crisis erupt into full blown problems. The Paper urges ECOWAS leaders to act now and decisively.
