Political science lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr Kwesi Amakye Boateng, has urged the Attorney General to disregard findings of Anas Aremeyaw Anas on the Ghana Football Association, GFA.
Sharing his thoughts on recent developments on the investigative piece by Anas and the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, Dr Amakye Boateng argued that the decision to edit aspects of the video before public screening is “contemptuous” and “lack of professionalism”.
He added: “Anas should not edit and comment on the video. He should allow viewers to make their own judgment. These are all elements of biases in his works. If he brings his work to the university, we shall set it ablaze, it is garbage. We shall tear it apart”.
Dr. AmaKye Boateng made the remark on Kumasi based Angel FM on Wednesday.
To him, such investigative works, which he admitted, was crucial to the development of the nation, must be carried out without prejudices.
Dr. Amakye Boateng adds that since Anas depends on secretly filming suspected corrupt public officials for a living, the potential of being partial would always exist.
“This is why he has not been able to bring every single conversation he encounters during his investigations for the public to make their own judgment. That is why the video is edited”, he insisted.
Former GFA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi and several football officials were filmed by Anas Aremeyaw Anas for allegedly accepting a cash gift from an undercover journalist, a move that breaches FIFA’s code of ethics.
He allegedly took $65,000 (£48,000) from an undercover Tiger Eye PI investigator pretending to be a businessman.
Following the investigations, Anas petitioned FIFA to ban Nyantakyi from all football-related activities for life but with investigations ongoing, Nyantakyi has decided to resign.
Consequently, the government of Ghana has since taken steps to dissolve the football governing body.
