The Daily Graphic is of the view that should government count the cost of indiscipline at all levels in the country, it will be alarmed to rise to the occasion. This follows the advice by the President of the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM), Ghana, Joe Mensah on government to deal with all forms of indiscipline in national life. He cited budget overruns, lateness and lackadaisical attitude to work in the public sector which relatively impact productivity. The paper says it appears Ghanaians have been spoilt because the rod is spared and people are beginning to see these unfortunate acts as normal. It notes that unless leadership rises to the occasion, it will worsen things and affect the future leaders of the country.
The Ghanaian Times believes that what is critical at this point is for lobbyists to cooperate with government to accelerate the development of the regions. It says it is important for chiefs, opinion and community leaders to be encouraged to provide the lands and other local resources to enable the regions to take off smoothly. The paper is of the view that the creation of additional regions would facilitate development of some parts of the country that remained relatively underdeveloped because of lack of proper care and attention and hopes that all interested parties craving for regional and district capitals would remain calm and accept the decision on the locations of the regional capital, even if the decision is not in their favour.
