Mohammed Polo tells Black Stars players


Summary short_text

The Black Stars have failed to win a major trophy since 1982 and according to the former Accra Hearts of Oak superstar, Ghana can win a trophy if the players remain committed.
Adding his voice to the trophy drought, Polo said, "The players should first and foremost think about the country and do away with monetary issues. They should know that the money given to them are to token and if they are able to fight and win a trophy the leadership of the country will award them".
"I think its about time they commit themselves to the country rather than focusing on money. Not every player can get the platform and so if they use the Black Stars platform well it will make them get more money than what they get on national duties".

Summary short_text

Former acting General Secretary of the Convention People's Party, James Kwabena Bomfeh Jnr., popularly known as Kabila has asked political parties to cease criticizing the Electoral Commission over the increment in filing fees.
Contributing to a panel discussion on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', Kabila who thinks the parties have no moral right to complain, recalled how he and other members of the CPP complained before the filing fee was reduced to GHC40, 000 for him to contest the General Secretary position in the CPP. "Personally I don't think the fee is high ... how much did we charge in our internal contests? You collected 100,000 internally and you are crying against the Electoral Commission? What moral right have you got to do that," he queried.
