Ghanaian journalist and mentor of investigate journalist Anas Aremayaw Anas, Kwaku Baako has revealed that his protégé refused to work on the trending s£x for grades exposé.
Abdul Malik Kweku Baako explained that the BBC approached Anas to work on its Africa Eye’s exposé on sexual 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 Anas to be in there, but Anas declined to be part of this particular project. Because he is doing so many other things and I did not want 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 regardless.
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.
