The Daily Graphic is worried about the impunity with which both public and private institutions that handle personal information of customers on a daily basis, flout the Data Protection Act (Act 843). The paper is appalled by the fact that most of these institutions have failed to register with the Data Protection Commission in order to comply with Act 843 and this has led to the unethical and unprofessional ways of handling personal data of the publics they deal with. The Graphic believes personal data protection is crucial to nation building because it promotes the fundamental rights and freedoms of persons who are related to the data. The paper says the Data Protection Commission must employ all legitimate means possible to make sure companies comply with the Data Protection Act.
The Ghanaian Times Expresses dismay about the consistent problem of land encroachment in the country. The paper is disgusted by reports indicating that people have started encroaching on warehouses and commercial structures being constructed by District Assemblies. The Times says it is disheartening to note the slow pace at which land disputes are handled in the various law courts. It calls on all stakeholders in land transactions including owners of the lands and legal representatives as well as government to ensure all necessary legal particulars about lands are concretized before transactions go on to avoid the hustle of a later dispute in court.
