The Daily Graphic applauds Bank of Ghana for creating a digital registry of all mobile money agents in the country. This is to help monitor their operations to ensure they comply with the regulatory requirements. The paper hopes the measure will further enhance identification and provide oversight supervision of agents’ business. The Graphic describes the move as an appropriate one in view of the fact that Ghana is transitioning into a new kind of retail banking system. The paper appeals to the Central Bank not to only layout the regulations, but also see to it that these regulations are enforced to serve as a deterrent to people who would want to take undue advantage of their customers.
The Ghanaian Times supports calls by the Minister of Business Development, Dr. Ibrahim Mohammed Awal to help reverse poor academic performance in the Northern Region. He lamented that the results of students, both in the BECE and WASSCE have not been encouraging for the past ten years. Dr. Awal blamed the poor academic performance partly on parents, students and teachers and called for dedication from all stakeholders to reverse the trend. The Times, therefore, calls on educationists, politicians, and parents to dialogue to map out strategies to improve the academic performance of students in the area.
