Anas exposé: 'I have the president in my pocket t-shirts' pop up
Yen.com.gh has sighted photos of a new T-Shirt that has the popular inscription ‘I have the president in my pocket’ that took over the internet as a result of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ latest expose that was screened for Ghana’s president ahead of its scheduled screening date.
In the investigative piece, it has been rumored the Ghana Football Association president, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi, had said he had the president in his pocket and that he could bribe him to do get his way through.
Although Mr Kwaku Baako, Editor in chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper and mentor of ace investigative journalist Anas Armeyaw Anas has denied that Kwesi Nyantakyi said he has the President Nana Akufo-Addo in his pocket, the opposition NDC, has allegedly printed T-Shirts to promote a ‘President in my pocket’ agenda.
The images first spotted by MyNewGh.com on social media from well-known operatives of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) who were calling on NDC members interested in getting the T-shirt to contact them.
The shirts, we learnt from the comments, had a goggle among the inscriptions to mimick the President’s glasses.
A lighter side of the alleged NDC propaganda is that the spelling of ‘President’ was without a ‘T’, and their opponents are mocking them.
