The Daily Graphic blames the country’s lack of development on its poor roads. The Paper sees road transport as an important element for improving societal welfare. The Graphic therefore urges government to invest more in road infrastructure for citizens to gain access to the remotest part of the country to unlock the productive potential in those areas. The Paper recommends that a routine of monitoring and evaluation mechanism be built in the road infrastructure investment policies to ensure that road constructions are properly executed by contractors. The Graphic, therefore, urges government to train selected experts to be able to face the challenges of implementing road infrastructural policies successfully.
The Ghanaian Times urges Ghanaians to turn out in their numbers on December 7 to vote ‘Yes’ to support the election of MMDCEs into office. The Paper says the referendum will serve as the last barrier to be cleared before people can firmly take control of the government. The Times is of the view that the lack of development at the local level is as a result of the appointment of MMDCEs by government. The Paper is thereby encouraging the public to elect their MMDCEs so that they can hold them accountable for their developmental projects.
