The Ghanaian Time commends the Christian Council for moves towards self-regulation. The Paper however regrets that, the Council is now taking steps to whip erring pastors into line. It recalls painfully how some so-called men of God have taken many Ghanaians for a ride and caused havoc in the lives of individuals and families. The Times believes things would have gotten bad if the Christian Council need not take steps to stop the so-called Men of God from inflicting psychological trauma on the people. It is the hope of the Paper that the bold move by the Council will bring sanity to the kingdom of God.

The Daily Graphic commends government for the bold steps it took to ban small-scale mining and the media campaign against illegal mining. It says the exercise which saw many of the Ghana Water Company Limited water treatment plants shut down due to the high level of pollution of water sources are now up and running at full steam. The paper however, believes that the menace is not over yet as there is still vast tracks of land being destroyed by galamsey and improper mining methods. The Graphic says, the GWCL has hinted that the unstable turbidity of the Brim River suggests that some galamsey operators are around the forest belt close to Bunso and Anyinam area. The paper urged government to effectively implement the comprehensive policy framework that has been developed to regularise small scale mining across the country, to sustain the massive gains made during the two-year ban and development of Operation Vanguard team.
