CNN: Apologize and delete false story that suggests food and products are scarce in Ghana.

On 9th December 2016, CNN International published an article titled: 'Ghana election: Incumbent concedes to Nana Akufo-Addo'
The said article alleges that “Oil reserves were discovered off the coast of Ghana in 2007, but Ghanians struggle to obtain food and day-to-day services. Rolling blackouts are common and citizens often stand in long line to obtain products.'
Rolling blackouts are common and citizens often stand in long line to obtain products.”
Excuse me CNN! Most Ghanaians didnt even spend more than 10mins in line to vote. If you saw any queues for food, it's because the food there is GOOD or POPULAR (Ghana Jollof + Waakye) - not because it's SCARCE. Food is no where scarce in Ghana, and we are not short of restaurants either.
We are tired of the lazy journalism, and journalism that always paints Africa in a bad light. We are asking for an immediate edit of the said article, and an unaqualified apology to the African people. #CNNGetItRight
