Black Starlets coach Ben Fokuo hopeful of 'bright future' for U-17 players


Summary short_text

Ben Fokuo believes there is so much quality in the team to make progress in their careers.
"The fact that we lost doesn't mean that the team won't go places. Sometimes you look at the quality of players you have and it tells you that they will go places," he told the GFA Communications team.
"If we lost a game doesn't mean that the team won't go places in terms of individual players. That's not the end for the U-17 team though we are out of the competition but we look ahead for a brighter future. Some of the players will still be in the U-17 team and some will progress to the U-20 and they will improve and help us win trophies," he added.

A lady doesn't speak the way you did


Summary short_text

"There is a way a lady is expected to talk so people take notice and learn from you. This is unacceptable. It's never disrespectful for someone to send for you or for your number. On the contrary, it is a respectful approach."
"How many people have done that to have triggered her decision to do makeup, apply lipstick and record a video?" Kwasi Aboagye asked.
On his part, Arnold said: "She spoke about respect, courtesy, class, decency How is this disrespectful? How is this indecent? How do you record a video over this? You refused to honour people's invitation in JSS and so what? What is this? Maybe she feels she wants to be approached; fair enough. But don't make it seem as if it is disrespectful, it doesn't show decency Don't come and disturb us. Do you know the number of people who went through this process and have subsequently been married for years?".

AfroChampions urges businesses in Ghana


Summary short_text

In spite of the publicity built around the AfCFTA, data from the Ghana Statistical Service shows that only 134,000 businesses are currently aware of the African Continental Free Trade Area agreement, making up 26.2 percent of firms nationwide.
"I mean all kinds of businesses are qualified to trade under the AfCFTA, both small and big businesses. The most important thing is for businesses in Ghana to try to obtain from government the list of the products which Ghana has negotiated to trade under the agreement. That's the most important thing. It's not every product that necessarily qualifies to be traded under the agreement. The second thing is to understand the different countries in Africa that are currently trading under the agreement because it is not all African countries that are joining the start of trading right away."

EPL: Crystal Palace end Arsenal's winning run – Citi Sports Online


Summary short_text

For a side in such good form, Arsenal were a disappointment going forward, their best effort at goal a shot on the turn from Alexandre Lacazette into the side-netting.
