The Daily Graphic says 50 deputy ministers have been appointed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to serve in the various ministries.
This according to the newspaper, brings the total number of ministers appointed to 110.
It gave the breakdown of total nominations made by the President as having 50 ministers in total and 60 deputy minsters.
The Ghanaian Times reports that some airmen in Takoradi have run amok again meting out various forms of brutalities to some residents in the capital city of the oil rich region.
The incident occurred on Monday night when they stormed Amanful, near the central market and brutalised scores of people in retaliation to an attack suffered by one of their men recently.
The photographs splashed on the front-page reveal deep cut on a finger, swollen mouth and plastered head with bloodstained shirts.
