Award-winning undercover investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has been criticized after announcing his latest expose dubbed ‘Galamsey Economy’ featuring a Lawyer, a Chief and Minister Charles Adu-Boahen but failed to show the first two as advertised.
A couple of days ago, Anas premiered his Galamsey Economy expose at the Accra International Conference Center (AICC).
Prior to the premiere, the undercover journalist announced what people should expect in the video but that was not what happened.
Many looked forward to finding out who the private legal practitioner and the chief mentioned in the post made by Anas Aremeyaw Anas on Facebook were.
But unfortunately, none of those persons were shown in the supposed investigative video.
Anas Tiger Eye investigators posed as businessmen in a hotel room in the United Arab Emirates and entrapped Minister of State at the Ministry of Finance Charles Adu Boahen, a lawyer who Anas claims said he introduced Adu-Boahen to politics and a Chief.
“A senior solicitor and a traditional chief, said he was not in the position to control or suggest a package for the President of Ghana, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, in a meeting in a hotel room in the United Arab Emirates.
Read what Anas Aremeyaw Anas advertised:
“The Barrister told the Tiger Eye investigators, posed as business tycoons, that he could not manipulate the President to do his bidding. However, he will try to help them have access to the President and his Vice and some influencers to do their business in Ghana,” Anas Aremeyaw Anas wrote on his Facebook timeline barely a few hours before the showing of his documentary dubbed ‘Galamsey Economy’
“I’ll try. I’ll do my best. You see we are talking of the President, so, I cannot tell you that I can control the President but, I can tell you that I will do my best to ensure that whatever that you want shall be done,
However, Patrons who went to the AICC wondered what happened in the days and hours before video was released for the two to be out.
Anas and his Controversial Tiger Eye team have kept mum about the development with questions flying on social media questioning the integrity of the journalist and his methods.
