Celebrated Ace Sports broadcaster, Joseph Asare Brako otherwise known as Abatey has touted the professional prowess of investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Even though Majority of Ghanaians do not support Anas’ methodology in uncovering alleged corrupt state officials especially, Kwesi Nyantakyi and Ghana Footbal, ‘Abatey’ says he still supports him 100%.
Abatey said, “Total rebirth of Ghana football’ when Docta Kay asked him about what he observes in Ghana’s future after the Anas #12 Expose”
“People should not think Ghana Football is coming to an end, we’re now doing proper restructuring, that’s why it’s called normalization. It’ll be very difficult for a referee to call for money from someone. Just imagine a club owner pays as much as 200 million only to win a match of 3 point. There was so much corruption is our football”
Speaking to Docta Kay on Accra Fm monitored by GhanaNewsPage.com, former worker of Despite and Multimedia Group Limited, Kofi Asare Brako said, “what Anas did is 100% correct”
He further said, even though Kennedy Agyapong is against the method it has not changed anything.
“Whether Anas is corrupt or not, Kennedy Agyapong is entitled to his own opinion”
Anas sues Kennedy Agyapong
Anas has dragged Mr Agyapong to court for defaming him and is asking the High Court to award for aggravated damages to the tune of GH¢25 million arising from defamatory materials published by the MP.
The MP has, in the past weeks, been publishing materials in his bid to discredit the investigative journalist, who has released a piece on the rot in Ghana football.
Displeased with the MP’s actions, Anas has, through his lawyer, Mr Kissi Agyebeng, sued Mr Agyepong for the award of general damages for defamation in the defendant’s publications and granted a sports journalist, Listowell Yesu Bukarson the lawful attorney to stand in for Anas.
The publication Anas is complaining about is a May 29, 2018 live programme in Twi on Adom TV, where Mr Agyapong categorically stated that Anas was a blackmailer, corrupt, an extortionist and evil.
On July 3, 2018, Mr Agyapong entered a conditional appearance to the suit and subsequently filed the motion on notice for an order to strike out Anas’s Writ of Summons on July 17, 2018. His lawyer sought to move the motion on July 26, 2018.
