The Daily Graphic discusses the difficulties public Universities and Institutions are going to face in accommodating the two groups of final-year students in SHS writing the WASSCE. The paper has therefore commended the University of Education, Winneba for doubling admissions for the 2013/2014 academic year in order to reduce anxiety among prospective students and parents. It said the Vice Chancellor of the University announced last Saturday that it will increase its admission by 50%. The paper is calling on the authorities of other Public Universities and Institution to find means of increasing their admissions this year. It says government should also provide the Universities with resources to expand their facilities.
The Ghanaian Times says as President Mahama marks his first 100 days in office, he goes into history as a President who did not enjoy a 100 day honey moon. The Paper says he has been confronted with a myriad of problems to solve. The paper is of the view that what is important now is how promises made to Ghanaians can be fulfilled. It expressed hope that as government chalks 100 days in office, it expects the strikes to end this week to enable government to concentrate on its development agenda. Whiles the Times urges government to build on gains made, it also enjoins Ghanaians to put the past behind and support the rapid development of the country.
