The Daily Graphic lauds three students of the University of Mines and Technology UMAT, Aseidu Brempong, Jewel Ami De Quist-Sosu and Richard Appiah for inventing a Cocoa -disease detection machine. The paper believes that if the new technology is adopted on all cocoa farms across the country, it will serve as a test case for the proliferation of other innovations by students of other sections of the Ghanaian economy. The Graphic urges government through the Ministry of Food and Agriculture and COCOBOD to fully embrace the invention and advocate its usage to boost cocoa production.
The Ghanaian Times notes with great concern reports that Ghana risks losing billions of dollars in oil revenue if it does not negotiate a new agreement with Aker Energy Ghana. The paper believes government must not give room for speculation before it comes out to set the records straight. It says there should be collaboration between government and civil society in safeguarding the countries resources. The Times therefore calls on government, Ministries and Agencies in charge of oil, to be thorough in their dealings to attract the confidence of the people.
