It has emerged that the British Broadcasting Corporation has acted in bad faith in its relationship with a Ghanaian ace journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye Group by rejecting his proposal to investigating corruptions in UK’s national institutions.
Source within the Tiger Eye group has told thepeoplesnewsafrica.com that after providing financial and technical assistance to the celebrated investigative journalist to targeting and exposing personalities and institutions in Africa of corruption, Anase proposed to the BBC to offer him the same support to run his test through some UK national institutions to see if he can find evidences of corruption.
Among the institutions and cases his proposal targeted were: Do the UK political class (leaders and politicians) influence/facilitate, or benefit from the continuous looting of Africa’s resources?; corruption and match fixing in the English Premier League; and racial abuses in UK’s universities (focusing on lecturers and university authorities)
However, the BBC out rightly rejected this proposal, stating that, such exposé will not be in the interest of the BBC and that of the UK.
Reports also indicates that this has created a sore relationship between the two partners to the extent that Anas refused to take a leading role or even participate in BBC Africa’s recent ‘Sex for Grade’ documentary in Ghana and Nigeria.
