The trending issue in Ghana right now is the publication of the photos of a man purported to be award-winning investigative Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The photos released by Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong during a discussion on the morning show of his NET 2 TV on Wednesday.
Anas has done a good job of hiding his face all this while and it makes it difficult to verify if this is his true identity or just hoax.
In a series of posts on Twitter not long after the pictures were shown on TV, Nana Aba who is known not to mince her words blasted NET 2 for being unprofessional and fearful people, who are doing the bidding of their master, Kennedy Agyapong. Read her tweets here.
Well, one Social media user and fellow journalist, James H. Obeng has shared his two cents on the issue and in a lengthy Facebook post he made, he described Nana Aba Anamoah as an unprofessional as well.
According to James Obeng, Nana Aba Anamoah displayed unprofessionalism when she sent her news crew out to ask Ghanaians what their reactions would be should they find out that a family member of theirs was gay.
He further asked Nana Aba Anamoah to stop being ‘all knowing’ and learn more about her trade before making such rants next time.

Dear Nana Aba Anamoah,
It is about time you give reasonable Ghanaians a break from your characteristic pontificating self.
Where dd you learn that it is unprofessional for a TV station to show a picture said to be Anas Aremeyaw Anas? In which journalism class or textbook did you learn that?
Well, let me tell you, we all hate the hypocrite Mr Ken Agyepong has become overnight, but the truth is, he is equally entitled to do what he is doing, as he has broken no law.
Yes, many Ghanaians, including myself, would love to anonymize Anas forever, so he could help us fight corruption in our country. But that does not mean, in any way, that it is unlawful to disclose Mr Anas identity. No wrong has been committed. Sometimes the truth hurts, and this is one such scenario.
So, how on earth could you call your fellow journalists at Net2 TV as a bunch of unprofessionals, for merely allowing Mr Agyepong to display Anas’ picture on their screens?
Truth is, attacking Net2 TV and calling it names is rather making people to believe those pictures as Anas, even though they are not. So, what is the basis of your attack anyway? Well, I disagree that Net2 TV did anything unprofessional. We all just wished they had not fallen for Mr Agyepong’s double-standardness.
But talking about unprofessionalism, let me show you one near-example. Unprofessionalism is when you Nana Aba, as head of News at GH-One Tv, release your news-team onto the streets of Accra to ask innocent Ghanaians what they would do when they find one of their relatives is a homosexual! And you film their responses and package it as news.
You can’t be smarter, Nana! We all have seen through the agenda you are so desperately trying to set, and at the appropriate time, the same Anas you are insulting others for will expose you.
Until then, stay blessed, be good, learn your trade well and stop being all-knowing!
Sincerely, Asomasi Kwaku Poku
