The Daily Graphic, calls for the sustenance of the momentum of the clean Ghana Campaign embarked upon by the Graphic Group and the Greater Accra Regional minister, Henry Quartey. It says to achieve this all citizens must be engaged in the campaign to observe good sanitation practices. The Graphic reckons the traditional authorities especially the chiefs have a role to play in this drive to rally members of their communities in the fight against insanitary conditions. It draws attention to open defecation along the beaches saying it is a blot on the nation’s conscience and has contributed to periodic outbreak of communicable diseases such as malaria. The Paper urges Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies to ensure the phenomenon is stopped through education and the provision of sanitary facilities.
The Ghanaian Times says in dealing with the three member Ejura Committee’s report, the interest of the public must be made paramount. The Paper in commending government for paying heed to agitations for a probe into the incident says it is only the truth that will put to end speculations by the public on the killings. The Times notes that the Ejura probe is of much interest to the public and any delays in making the report public would engender conjectures and a rejection as it will be deemed as doctored. The paper therefore urges the interior Minister not to fail Ghanaians on his promise to make the report public in earnest. It says persons found guilty must be punished accordingly to serve as a deterrent to others.
