Internationally-acclaimed investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has denied doing an undercover work in the Parliament of Ghana.
Following the release of his latest documentary exposing the rots and canker at the Ghana Football Association (GFA) earlier this month resulting in the dissolution of the association by the government, Anas has been criticised (again) of being selective in the kind of work he does and the kind of work he puts in the public.
Speaking on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show on Thursday, Anas explained that he never announces his work before carrying out his investigation. He denied claims making air waves that he had done an undercover work in the Parliament (of Ghana) which he is refusing to put in the public.
“Did I tell you I was doing an investigation in parliament? When did I say this?” he questioned Daniel Dadzie, the host.
“I have not done any work in Parliament. If I have done work in Parliament, I will release it. I will do it for you to see” he reiterated.
However, Anas Aremeyaw Anas affirms claims made by Kweku Baako Jnr on a story related to galamsey operations in the country.
Additionally, the celebrated journalist indicated that nobody dictates the kind of work he does. Through his investigative undercover work, he decides on what to do and there is no instance where he is influenced by another person’s comment to come up with a story.
“After what I have gone through in my investigative undercover work…I will be stupid to follow somebody’s comment and because of that I come out with a story,” he told the host.
He emphasised that he makes sure he is well prepared before he put out a story and it takes time to do so. The ace journalist also advised his colleagues to come out with work that people will learn from. He again discouraged them from relying on rumours on what people think should happen and should not happen.
