The Daily Graphic writes on the need to support Cocoa farmers in the country. It endorses the President's call on the Ghana Cocoa Board to within a week announce a new producer price of Cocoa as not only timely but refreshing. To the paper Ghana's Cocoa is of good quality hence it enjoys a better price on the international market. It says it is therefore proper for farmers to enjoy the proceeds for their toil and labour. The Daily Graphic takes note of government's initiatives in the Cocoa industry while it commends government for those initiatives it urges government to address all problems that have bedeviled the mass Cocoa spraying exercise.

The Public Agenda describes as good news the efforts by government to seek the best for Ghana in the exploitation of its petroleum resources by increasing GNPC's stake in the Jubilee Oil Field. The paper says sadly GNPC stake in the Jubilee Oil Field is a mere 10 percent until government secured an additional three percent. It urges govern in its intention to acquire KOSMOS Energy's 30 percent stake in the Jubilee Oil Field though it recognizes that the task is a difficult one. But the paper believes that government will achieve it's aim to serve the interest of Ghanaians.
