The Daily Graphic appeals to the Ministry of Finance and the Securities Exchange Commission to work expeditiously to enable government to keep its promise of supporting the process with a bailout package for those affected by the collapsed financial institutions. According to the paper, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused enough damage economically to most Ghanaians including investors whose funds have been locked up with those fund management companies whose licenses were revoked. Therefore, denying these investors access to their locked-up funds will be too devastating and can potentially destroy livelihoods. The Graphic urges government to act quickly as it goes to the rescue of the affected investors to maintain their confidence.
The Ghanaian Times applauds the Institute of Statistical Social and Economic Research (ISSER), for coming out with useful findings on the Planting for Food and Jobs Programme, PFJ. The Institute conducted research into the performance of the PFJ’s and identified challenges relating to subsidies on farm inputs, market output and extension services. It is the hope of the Times that the Ministry of Food and Agriculture MOFA would take the suggestions on board and fine tune the programme moving into the future. The Paper says admittedly some of the research findings are already known to everyone and the findings only go to emphasize the need for the country to find solutions to them.
