The Daily Graphic expresses the need to step up efforts to stop the looming shortfall in national revenue generation. It notes that the tax stamp imposed on manufacturers and importers of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, bottled water and tobacco is one key measure that can plug the revenue shortfalls.  The paper welcomes the decision by the Ghana Revenue Authority, GRA, to prosecute defaulters, in a bid to ensure accountability and whip them into line. The Graphic however urges the GRA and the private sector to work towards an amicable position that could include extending the prosecution date to January next year. This it believes, will allow local manufacturers to install tax affixing machines and configure systems to avoid depressed growth.

The Ghanaian Times finds it alarming that kidney related diseases are assuming epidemic proportions in Ghana, with more than 12,000 cases reported annually. It notes that although the only available remedy for such people in Ghana is to undergo dialysis, there are only 28 dialysis centres across Ghana making it One thousand patients to a centre. The paper finds this worrying. Saying if the country does not put in place stringent measures to find a life line for such patients, many would be lost to the disease due to their inability to seek health care. The Times therefore calls on government and stakeholders to join hands either in establishing more facilities or set up a fund to lighten the financial burden on patients.
