The Ghanaian Times eulogizes Ghana’s Former President Jerry John Rawlings and applauds him for his achievements on the political landscape. The paper finds it interesting how he overthrew a constitutionally elected government on December 31, 1981 and later accepted democracy. The paper urges Ghanaians to bury their differences and negative views of the late Former president and rather wish him fare well.

Let’s focus on AfCFTA’s implementation challenges is how the Daily Graphic captures its editorial. The paper believes AFCFTA will allow African companies to enter new markets and in the long run expand their customer base leading to new products and services, making investment in innovation viable. However, with restrictions lifted on foreign investment, investors will flock the continent. This will bring some difficulties to many emerging African markets that rely on farming for employment and these small family farms cannot compete with large-agri-businesses in high-income African countries such as South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Egypt and Nigeria. As a result, the small farmers may lose their farms, leading to high, unemployment, crime and poverty. The Graphic says to scale these hurdles there must be comprehensive policy-making and preferential treatment for Africa’s most at-risk economies so they can benefit from it.
