The Daily Graphic is saddened at the spate of road accidents in the country. Though it commends the MTTD, the National Road Safety Commission and all other stakeholders for the efforts they have been putting in to stop road carnage, it is of the view that they are not doing enough to stem the tide. The paper says apart from ensuring that vehicles are roadworthy and the roads passable all year round, the road safety laws must be strictly enforced so that lives can be saved. The Graphic says it is time the laws of the road bite as pertains in other jurisdictions where effecting ticketing does the trick. The paper entreats government to bring finality to the issue about towing trucks to ensure they are always close by to remove stationary and broken-down trucks from the roads as they have been proven to be one major cause of road accidents in the country.
The Ghanaian Times says teachers should be given targets to meet, considering the recent incident that occurred at Jachie D/A Junior High School where teachers were chatting during lesson hours whiles students were in the class doing their own thing. The Times, in view of this, advises GES to evaluate and monitor the actions of teachers. The paper believes there is no supervision of teachers as they do not care about the students. It therefore asks that if teachers are calling for what is due them they should equally discharge their duties and produce expected results since education is very crucial to the nation’s development.
