Elizabeth Ohene, Ghana's Minister of State in charge of Education, Science
and Sports, has apologized to journalists covering the ongoing 26th
Africa Cup of Nations for the numerous problems they had encountered
preparatory to the championship, according to a report in the Accra Mail.

"On behalf of the Ministry and the Local Organising Committee (LOC) I wish to apologize to all for the difficulties they encountered with regard to accreditation for the competition.

"We acknowledge the problems and take responsibility and we shall rectify the problems," Miss Ohene stated.

She explained that the problems arose out of the huge number of accreditation applications, from both the local and international media. According to Miss Ohene, the number was above expectation and they were overwhelmed by it and that "threw everything out of gear".
