According to the paper, a large chunk of the 2012 budget could not be fulfilled and steps must be taken to ensure that this year's budget estimates are within range
The Daily Graphic commends Rlg Communications Limited for yet another bold initiative to turn Ghana into a knowledge society and major economic player on the African Continent.

It is the prayer of the Graphic that Roland Agambire, Chief Executive Officer of Rlg, Communications will receive the necessary cooperation to realise this big dream.
The paper notes that Ghana's fortunes can be turned around if opportunities in ICT are leveraged.
The Ghanaian Times put the searchlight on the Police Service and the crucial role it plays in contemporary Ghana.
It says the population has increased and society has become sophisticated coupled with the introduction of ICT thus assigning to the Police additional duties as well as redefining their functions.
The Times says though the functions of the Ghana Police Service as stipulated in the Service Act 1970 (Act 350) are crime detection and prevention of offenders, the Service has been stretched to its limit by new development, demands and challenges.
