The Ghanaian Times even though sad that the Black Stars have been bundled out of AFCON 2019 commends the Tunisians on their effort. The Times believes the Black Stars did not lose to a much superior side, especially after Skipper Andre Dede Ayew scored a brilliant goal in the first half of the game which the South African referee in his estimation, unjustifiably disallowed. The paper urges the Confederation of African Football, for the sake of fairness and for the good of the game, to take a second look at the goal the Black Stars scored and was overruled by the referee. The paper also asks Ghanaians to take the early exit of the Black Stars in good faith, hoping that we have, as a country learnt useful lessons to inform the way forward.
The Daily Graphic is happy that a secretariat of the Africa Continental Free Trade Area will be established in the country to boost intra-African trade. The paper says the establishment of the Secretariat will improve trade, finance, information and accelerate market integration with forty-nine African countries.The Graphic urges Ghanaians to hold on dearly to it, and must not be oblivious of the country’s effort in securing the hosting of the Secretariat. It therefore calls on Parliament, the trade ministry, businesses, entrepreneurs and others to also position themselves to play their roles and prove to the rest of Africa and the world that Ghana is capable.
