The Ghanaian Times writes on the impact of COVID 19 on food security. It says it is gratifying to know that despite global concerns about the availability of food in the era of the pandemic, Ghana is producing in excess. Storage of this surplus, however, comes into question. It notes that the outbreak of COVID 19 in the country reinforces the importance of preserving food surpluses and an opportunity to scale up the country’s storage and management capacity. The TIMES urges government to particularly pay attention to food storage before the country finds itself wanting.
The Daily Graphic is appalled by the recent demolition at old Fadama popularly called Sodom and Gomorah in Accra. The Paper believes as much as the exercise was appropriate, the timing was wrong. This is because it displaced thousands of residents who were struggling to survive the coronavirus partial lockdown making them more vulnerable. It, therefore, tasks city authorities and other state agencies to rethink their actions to ensure that lives of the vulnerable are not endangered unnecessarily in the wake of the pandemic.
