The Ghanaian Times reminds the Minister of Works and Housing, Asenso Boakye that previous sector Ministers upon assumption of office, expressed their desire to discharge the best of services to the state and its people, yet if the records are assessed now, most of them would be found wanting. While the paper congratulates Asenso Boakye on his appointment and commends him for making the move to solve the perennial flooding in Accra and Tema, it urges him to extend his move to Koforidua, Kumasi and elsewhere. It reminds him that he is in charge of a ministry which performance is more open to public scrutiny and assessment by even the unlettered. The Times appeals to the new minister not to initiate the move for the camera only, but work to justify his assurances.
The DAILY GRAPHIC finds the partnership between the Graphic Communications Group and the Access Bank Ghana to transform the Small and Medium Scale Enterprises sector for the good of the country as most appropriate and timely particularly at this time when SMEs are bearing the brunt of COVID-19. The paper finds it useful in view of the fact that it is meant to add value to their businesses to grow and become more competitive. While commending the Access Bank for demystifying the SME sector as a no-go area for banks it is the hope of the GRAPHIC that the players in the industry will not only fully participate but will take the speakers and coaches seriously to turn around their businesses in their own interest and in the broader interest of the economy.
