Anas wasn’t part of ‘Sex for Grades’ exposé – Kweku Baako
Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr, has dismissed reports suggesting that, Anas Aremeyaw Anas was part of BBC recent documentary titled ‘Sex for Grades’.
According to him, the investigative journalist had nothing to do with BBC Africa Eye’s ‘Sex for Grades’ documentary adding 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 an Anas to be in there, but Anas declined to be part of this particular project. [This is] because he is doing so many other things and I did not want an Anas to be in there,
“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 though.” Mr Baako told Samson Lardy Anyenini on Newsfile.
After the BBC aired its exposé on alleged sexual misconduct at the University of Ghana and University of Lagos, two lecturers of the University of Ghana captured in the documentary — Prof. Ransford Gyampo and Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor– were interdicted.
They are expected to be called before the University’s Special Committee to assist with internal investigations.
Although the lecturers in question have denied the allegations leveled against them, pressure has mounted on the University to take conclusive stance to show its commitment to dealing with the issue of sexual misconduct.
Whilst some groups want the two disciplined, others have argued that the content of the documentary is not credible enough to implicate the lecturers.
