The Daily Graphic says the issue of Non-Communicable Diseases is becoming worrying in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. According to the National Covid-19 Response Team, ninety-five percent of people who died of viral infection in Ghana had at least one Non-Communicable Disease. It is for this reason that the paper thinks such diseases must be tackled with a more serious approach. It says the time for institutions in the country to take a closer look at their investment in the management of NCDs is now. The paper calls for a national crusade for the prevention and management of NCDs. Individuals should also have their blood pressure, blood sugar, and lipid levels checked routinely to avoid surprises as early detection saves lives. The Graphic says it will be shameful for more Ghanaian lives to be lost to Covid-19, heart attack, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, asthma and others because people failed to take action.

The Ghanaian Time calls on Ghanaians to protect the reputation of the country by putting up good behavior to dignify the institutions that are helping in deepening democracy and national development. This to the Paper is the surest way of upholding the country’s credentials of a shining example of an oasis of peace in the West African sub-region. It says post-election demonstrations across the country can degenerate into violence which will derail the quest for peace, stability, and development if not properly organized and handled. The Times says although it appreciates the right of persons to demonstrate to press home their demands, such actions should not infringe on the rights and freedom of other citizens. It urges the demonstrators to listen to their leaders, who have demonstrated their commitment to seek redress through laid down procedures.
