Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, a statesman and politician, has expressed dissatisfaction with the method by which investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas airs his documentaries.
His remark comes after Anas Aremeyaw Anas aired his documentary ‘Galamsey Economy,’ which featured Charles Adu Boahen, Minister of State at the Ministry of Finance.
Mr. Adu Boahen is said to have told undercover investigators that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia required $200,000 as a “appearance fee” before meeting with alleged investors.
The Minister was also quoted as saying that the Vice President would demand contracts from an investor in order to gain his support and influence in establishing a business in Ghana.
According to a stalwart of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Anas Aremeyaw Anas is not engaged in investigative journalism.
“I have stated unequivocally that I do not believe Anas. I don’t think he’s an investigative reporter. “An investigative journalist works in such a way that all of the points he obtains are so important to him that no one ever hears about it,” he explained.
Mr Nyaho-Tamakloe, on the other hand, stated that Anas Aremeyaw Anas gives the documentary to the government first before airing it to the public.
Anas Aremeyaw is not credible in my opinion. Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe says Anas is an investigative journalist. “The first thing he should do is release it to the public, in a public hall or something.”
“However, in this case, when an investigative journalist publishes something, he ensures that it is seen by the country’s leaders before it is made public.”
The statesman stated that Anas’s most recent investigative documentary featured the President and his vice president, but nothing was done about it.
“During his most recent investigation, the names of the President and Vice President were revealed.” What exactly happened? “We should stop thinking that the people of this country are stupid,” he added.
