The Ghanaian Times believes the European Union’s decision to blacklist Ghana and some other countries with strategic deficiencies in their Anti-Money Laundering and countering the financial of terrorism frame work is flawed in many aspects saying there were no communications with Ghana concerning short comings that need to be improved. The paper adds its voice to that of government in calling for the reversal of the decision. The Times urges the European Union to give Ghana and defaulting countries the opportunity to put their cases across to the world.
The Daily Graphic applauds government for making available over fifty-five million cedis to provide incentives for teachers to offer extra classes to all senior high school students after the normal classes hours. It says this is laudable because it will afford students the opportunity to benefit from remedial measures and other interventions that will help bridge the gap between what they should cover and what they have really covered unlike in the past when it was only those who could afford to pay for extra classes who were catered for while the poor who might be the ones who needed the extra tuition most were denied that opportunity. Much as the paper appreciates the effort by government, it says, a look should be taken at especially the basic level of education to incentivise the teachers there as well to prepare the children for the senior high level.
