The Daily Graphic discuses Streetism among children. The paper says though many international conventions have been signed by the country on the problem, very little has been done to get the growing number of children from the streets. It notes that the increasing phenomenon of streetism is a menace that could potentially become a national security problem. The paper, therefore, urges international bodies, NGOs and faith-based organisations, to step up efforts to address the canker.
The Ghanaian Times appeals to the government to engage fishers and industry players to deal with the frustration in the sector. The paper says invasion of the territorial waters by foreign vessels known as ‘Saiko’ is worrying, and the sooner action is taken to stop it, the better it would be for the fishing industry and the country at large. The Times reiterates that ‘Saiko’ is a bad fishing activity that is depleting the fishing stock, adding that, the act must end now.
The Daily Heritage congratulates all SHS graduates on completing this year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination. The paper says though the examination was characterised by incidents, it ended peacefully. The paper extends condolences to all families whose wards passed on in the cause of the examination.
