Western Regional Football Association Chairman, Kojo Yankah, has descended heavily on Anas Aremeyaw Anas ahead of the upcoming “exposé number 12 video”, insisting that he feels pity for the investigative journalist for the highly anticipated piece.
Widespread reports in the media suggest that several leading members of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) will be implicated in the video, which is expected to be premiered on Wednesday, June 6, 2018.
But Mr Yankah has affronted the claim of widespread corruption within the ranks of the FA and has labelled the ace investigative journalist as a pitiful person and has dared him to incriminate any FA member in the video.
“I feel pity for Anas. I wish I’ll be captured in the video because I don’t believe the ingenuity of his work,” Yankah said on Accra-based, Happy FM.
“How can he call himself a righteous person and force bribe on people’s neck and film them. Look at what he’s done to the life of the police he implicated in one of his expose videos…he forced the man to take the money and now go and look at the man’s life. He is not what he claims to be. Someone should kindly tell Anas to add me to the video.”
“Nobody cares whether the video will be shown to 60,000 people or not; I can tell you that he will not succeed with the witch hunting video against the FA. Why does Anas put on a mask when investigating?
“No FA member is scared or terrified about June 6. Those saying GFA officials are afraid because of the video are telling lies. I seriously pity him. I said this with a purpose and after June 6 I will explain it to the whole world,” Yankah deduced.
Screenings of ‘Number 12” which the latest of the investigative journalist will be done in Accra, Kumasi, Tamale and Takoradi between June 9 and June 16 to afford residents the opportunity to appreciate the efforts of the undercover journalist whose avowed goal is ‘name, shame and jail.’
