The paper appreciates frontline workers like doctors, nurses who have been providing life-saving care, teachers who educate students both on and offline and many more who provide essential services to the public. The paper recognizes public service administration as the cornerstone of government work. It says when public service lacks capacity, government will be incapacitated and development will fall short. It, therefore, urges government to reflect on how to better protect, recognize and invest in the well-being of public workers for them to bounce back better.
The Ghanaian Times is concerned about the flagrant disregard for law and order by those who took the decision to demolish a property of the Nigerian High Commission. In the aftermath of the demolition, the High Commission and the Osu Traditional Council have engaged in war of words with claims and counter claims. While the High Commission accuses those who undertook the exercise of invading a diplomatic mission, the Osu Stool is claiming ownership of the land and accusing the High commission of trespassing. The paper adds its voice to those who are condemning the action and calls for a swift investigation into the matter. The paper is hopeful that having rendered an apology and the assurance of swift investigation, the Nigerian High Commission would remain calm and not allow the situation to escalate beyond this point.
