Anas Aremeyaw Anas has debunked claims about him collaborating with the BBC in his recent “Number 12’’ exposé on the corruption in Ghana’s Football.
His response was in view of recent controversies regarding his collaboration with BBC with some Ghanaians expressing doubts about his credibility.
Anas has been accused of extorting money from his victims to enrich himself. His exposé is also said to have been funded by BBC.
In an interview with Joy FM, Anas explained the role of BBC regarding his investigations saying his work attracted the attention of BBC which informed their decision to show it on their channel.
The investigative journalist recounted to the host on the Super Morning show that “BBC did a story about my investigation and that what has been played on BBC, ‘Betraying the Game’ and that’s a sort of collaboration I had with BBC “.
He further stated that this is not the first time a foreign media has shown interest in his investigative works.
“Aljazeera did the judges scandal, they did a story about my story you know, I have worked with international media, many…of them I have worked with them, and so there is nothing absolutely wrong with it”.
Following the investigations by Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team, Kwesi Nyantakyi has resigned as President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) with FIFA also banning him from engaging in all local and international football activities.
The Government of Ghana has also dissolved the GFA as a result of the ongoing investigations into the rot in the country’s football.
