“Ghana Has A Bright Future” is how the Daily Graphic titles its editorial. To the paper, the road to middle income status is becoming apparent. This is because gains have been made to modernise agriculture and expand agricultural production. More buses have been imported for the Metro Mass Transit to improve public transportation and in the education sector, one thousand three hundred schools have been constructed to replace schools under frees. The paper urges the prudent use of revenue that will accrue from oil production to dramatically change the country's infrastructural base. It said there should be a network of roads in the three regions of the north and modernised road network in the Western Region where the extractive industry is mainly based.
The Heritage calls for speedy completion of the Tetteh-Quarshie Pantang road project which according to the paper, is developing at a slow pace. To the paper, the reconstruction project which witnessed a major revival a few months ago has gone into relapse, and a big chunk of the project still needs to be done before completion. The paper makes a case for the contractors of the N1 Highway which to the paper, should be the standard by which all road contractors should be judged. It is the expectation of all and Sunday that this project should be completed as soon as possible.
