Seasoned Ghanaian journalist and mentor of investigate journalist Anas Aremayaw Anas, Kwaku Baako Jnr has revealed that his protégé refused to work on the trending s£x for grades exposē which has rocked the nation.
Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr explained that the BBC had approached Anas to work on its Africa Eye’s exposé on sekzual harassment in two universities in West Africa but he declined the offer.
Apparently, Anas would have worked on that huge assignment instead of Kiki Modi if he had not been busy at that time.
Mr Baako told Samson Lardy Anyenini on JoyNews’ current affairs programme Newsfile, Saturday that, Anas was busy with other projects.
“There is no Anas in there because it wasn’t as if an opportunity did not exist for an Anas to be in there, but Anas declined to be part of this particular project. [This is] because he is doing so many other things and I did not want an Anas to be in there,” he explained.
The veteran journalist noted that the “BBC are capable…in fact when it comes to infrastructural, logistical and all those things they have more than Tiger Eye especially BBC Africa Eye…there is a close relationship between Tiger Eye and BBC Africa Eye though.
The exposè which is currently one of the topical issues within mainstream discourse, blew the lid on the immoral acts of lecturers in some tertiary institutions in West Africa, notably Ghana and Nigeria.
Prof Yaw Gyampo and Butakor from the University of Ghana were implicated in the investigate piece that was premiered in Ghana last week.
