The Ghanaian Times commends government for launching the ‘Rearing For Food and Jobs’ programme as a motivation for farmers to step up livestock production. The paper appreciates the President’s keen interest in making agriculture the backbone of economic transformation, as he pursues the Ghana Beyond Aid agenda. The Times however appeals to the Minister of Special Development Initiative to help resolve challenges facing the One Village One Dam flagship programme so that quite a number of dams will be available, as a source of water for animals. The paper hopes the programme comes with efficient, affordable and accessible veterinary services to take care of the health of the livestock. The Times is convinced the Programme is another laudable initiative that must succeed.

The Daily Graphic adds its voice to calls by the Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, for participants in the third Africa China population conference which has opened in Accra, to find innovative ways to factor population issues into Ghana’s development planning. The paper notes that funding for development such as population by donors is dwindling and urges participants to learn from China on how it has managed its population over the years.
