We lie during campaign period – Mahama confesses

Anas Aremeyaw Anas does not produce political exposés in an election year. Check his record. He never does.

He has said this in a number of interviews that he does not want his work to swing any election. Political Parties must compete based on their own records and opinions for the voting public hold of each of them prior to and during an election year.

So yes, I am sure many may be expecting his health COVID 19 related stories to expose high profile figures, politicians and public figures. But, this won’t be about them, at least not from what I know through my contacts at Tiger Eye P.I & BBC.

The expectation that Anas is synonymous with BIG exposés is good and challenging. Good in the sense that the public has high expectations of his work, that he is arguably one of the best to unravel corruption in high places.

Challenging in the fact that the human interest stories from health and safety to social phenomena are not appreciated by those with adrenaline for the wild. But these kinds of stories rather ought to be the wild-it’s about your health, your safety, social problems. He cannot and should not stop doing such stories.

Then, there are those who say now people are not queuing to watch his exposés. Lol.
But the stories that Anas and his team put up for public viewing are the ones that take years to investigate-at least 2 to 3 years. Such stories are produced once in a while for instance “Ghana in the eyes of God” also known as Judges’ scandal in 2015 and “Number12” in 2018.

So yes, his team works towards one big story for public viewing that takes longer to investigate, then there are the regular stories that take less than a year to produce. The regular stories are never premiered for public viewings but it is shown on national television as well as on international channels like BBC, Aljazeera among others.

Anas Aremeyaw Anas is not your regular journalist.
