The Ghanaian Times commends government for handing over two hundred vehicles to the Ghana Police Service at a ceremony in Accra. The paper calls on Police personnel to carry out their duties without any excuses as well as justify why government must give them more vehicles.

The Daily Heritage says multiple power suppliers will be good for price competition following a new policy to be introduced by the Energy Commission to give smaller private entities licence to distribute power regardless of the metre they use.

The Heritage welcomes the new policy and urges the Commission to consult widely to ensure the success of the policy by 2023.
