The Ghanaian Times wishes mother’s belated Happy Mother’s Day. It says while people think of making their mothers happy on the day, they should note that influence of mothers begins from conception because the womb is the first environment of every living soul. It says how well a woman keeps herself before and after conception affects the destinies of some people. The paper says if mothers really influence society that much, it means they should be well educated so that their influence on children could help these to-be adults to make better choices that would in turn influence society for the better. The Times says mothers are needed to teach children to love schooling, build the sense of dignity of work, appreciate how to work to make money, live in peace with self and with others and acknowledge that there is competition out there and every growing child must prepare for that.
The Daily Graphic is happy with the new Land Act, 2020(Act 1036) which marks a watershed for land administration in Ghana. The paper is pleased because the Act will revise and consolidate the laws on land, with the view to harmonizing them to ensure sustainable land administration and management as well as effective land tenure. In the paper’s view one of the good points of the Act is that it will help remove the overlaps and inconsistencies that are currently associated with land legislation. The Graphic holds the view that the Lands Act provides a critical opportunity for government to address both historic and current challenges and issues in the land sector, with far-reaching repercussions on socio-economic development. The paper believes the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources and related agencies under its ambit must undertake comprehensive public education on the Land Act so that citizens will know their rights and responsibilities as land owners and beneficiaries of family or stool lands.
