The Daily Graphic believes that the time has come for the country to steer a common course of restoring stability in the economy and allowing the private sector, which is the engine of growth to thrive and take its place of pride in the interest of the country. In this regard, the paper entreats the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, to ensure that the budget on Wednesday brings hope to all investors especially Ghanaians. The paper also expects the 2018 budget to introduce measures that will not only safeguard but also generate more revenue to execute what the government has set out to do.
The Ghanaian Times advises Ghanaians to give support to the Black Stars for the team to "rise again". The paper believes it is time for Ghanaians to move on from the team's disqualification state to winning the World Cup. It says attention must rather be geared towards seeing the team qualify for the 2019 African Cup of Nations. The Times backs head coach of the team Kwesi Appiah, as he attempts to build a winsome and invincible team. The paper is of the conviction that when all hands are on deck, the team would be a formidable force in global football.
The Daily Heritage expresses dismay that due to different ideologies the two main political parties, the NDC and NPP hardly agree on any issues and these ultimately border on the interest of the country. According to the paper, it would be recalled that under the erstwhile NDC administration, a day was set aside every month for clean-up exercises. This discipline gained popularity, but later fizzled out. The paper urges the public to try to sustain the sanitation campaign launched on Monday November 13 by President Akufo-Addo and ensure that it does not become a nine-day wonder. The Heritage therefore calls on Ghanaians to change their attitude towards refuse disposal.
