    the gazette stands tall in quality among many
    newspapers in Ghana. i was attracted to it last year
    when i was providing some service at the WOOLTHWORTHS
    outlet in Accra.

    the paper’s layout is unique and the print quality is
    captivating. such a paper is too good to be free in
    Ghana.
