Here Is Why Anas Aremeyaw Anas Is Trending On Twitter

Anas Aremeyaw Anas, a Ghanaian investigative journalist,has been on the low for several months and his whereabouts are unknown.

However, due to recent statements made by the Speaker of Parliament on the current status of Ghana football, his name has unexpectedly risen up in the local digital space, especially on Twitter. 

Mr. Bagbin, speaking after swearing in newly elected executives of the Parliamentary Press Corps, blamed Ghana football’s woes on the dismissal of former Ghana Football Association (GFA) boss Kwesi Nyantakyi, who was implicated in Anas and his Tiger Eye PI company’s Number 12 exposé – a corruption investigative film.

“When we were able to bring down Kwesi Nyantakyi, we also brought down Ghana football,” he said.

The Speaker revealed that during a discussion with FIFA Executives, they questioned why Mr Nyantakyi was thrown out of office.

“When I met the Executives of FIFA and said I was the Speaker of the Parliament of Ghana, they said what happened? Why did you people do that?

“The value that he (Nyantakyi) carried at their meetings – he was highly respected, he was very influential and Ghana football was up there. We thought we were handling Nyantakyi, but we didn’t know we were handling the whole of Ghana.”

Twitter users who have heard the Speaker’s remarks wonder if Mr. Alban Bagbin is suggesting that Mr. Nyantakyi should not have been sanctioned in the first place.
