The Daily Graphic expresses disappointment with the inability of successive governments to come out with a clear housing policy.
It attributes the problem to factors which include inefficiency on the part of management.
This has resulted in real estate developers quoting exorbitant prices in some cases foreign currency and landlords collecting huge sums from prospective tenants.
The Graphic welcomes the regeneration programme by the current management of the State Housing Corporation, SHC, to redevelop its existing sites to accommodate more Ghanaians.
The Kaneshie site when completed is expected to house more than 500 tenants instead of the existing 144.
The paper hopes management of the SHC will live up to expectation by putting in the requisite systems to prevent a situation where some members of staff of the Corporation will take advantage to defraud Ghanaians seeking accommodation.
The Ghanaian Times laments insults and hate speech by politicians at the least opportunity.
The paper says these politicians lash at their opponents to win the admiration of party faithful who describe them as brave.
The paper believes society must focus more on politicians who organize rallies and make unsavoury utterances to incite their supporters.
It also thinks politicians who own media houses should control the journalists who work for them.
The True Statesman is of the view that all the information the former Attorney-General Martin Amidu has concerning the government are privy.
It therefore thinks it cannot under any circumstance threaten to reveal such information to the public.
The paper thinks Mr.
Amidu is damaging his reputation as a lawyer if not already dented.
The True Statesman calls on Mr Amidu, not to let his anger compel him to threaten his former masters or clients.
