AON seeks to cover the African continent widely and analyses events and developments seldom mentioned by other mainstream media. There is a special focus on also to cover positive developments on the continent. Compared to other news agencies, AOC copy is also fairly seldom seen in online media. This makes afrol News and AON copy much more exclusive for your readers, which typically will recognise copy from other mainstream agencies from other media they regularly browse.
