Deputy Communications Minister, Felix Ofosu Kwakye in an interview with Happy FM’s Showbiz Xtra has revealed that the satirical piece going round about Mahama asking TV3 to reinstate Nana Aba has no basis.

“It hasn’t got any basis and I haven’t seen any mainstream website, newspaper or radio station carrying the story because they know it’s not true. So if we come and talk about it, then we are rather giving it more prominence and they have mentioned it’s not true so we can’t go and follow up on it.

We don’t have the power to tell the publisher not to write that and we can’t drag them to court because they have a disclaimer stating it’s not true. The only thing to do now is to ignore it because anything you say now will raise issues to another level.

The one who wrote the story wrote beneath it that it’s satirical so it’s obvious it’s not true. TV3 is a private organization and so we can’t go and tell them what to do. If someone is sacked at Happy FM, the President can’t come and order the company to reinstate the person”,the Deputy Communication Minister said in a phone interview.

Popular TV presenter, Nana Aba Anamoah’s was taken off air by management of TV3 exactly after a supposed “prank” on Twitter.

A statement signed by the Chief Executive Officer of TV3, Mr. Augustus Dickson, described Nana Aba’s conduct as online information theft and unprofessional misrepresentations.

“After preliminary investigations internally, and in accordance with TV3’s own commitment to the highest level of professionalism, management has decided to take Nana Aba Anamoah off air until further notice.”

“As a broadcast network that prides itself in upholding high ethical standards and delivering credible and trustworthy content to its viewers, TV3 would like to assure viewers and other key stakeholders that it shall continue to take all necessary steps to maintain such standards,” the statement noted.

Outspoken TV presenter Nana Aba Anamoah’s Photoshop prank on twitter has cost her job at Kanda based TV3.

Exactly a week after the “Divas Show” hostess tweeted a ‘fake’ selfie, her employers have taken her off air because according to management of TV3 Nana Aba’s conducts amounts to “online information theft and other unprofessional misrepresentations”.

This rather hush reaction from TV3 has attracted serious backlash with several people waging a campaign on social media to bring Nana Aba back. Hence the #bringbackNanaAba campaign initiated by reigning Comedian Derick Kobina Bonney popularly Known as DKB.

The award winning Comedian who is currently Ghana’s comedy king has begun a solidarity campaign for TV3’s News anchor, Producer and Presenter Nana Aba Anamoah who has been taken off air. The campaign is tagged #bringbackNanaAba to bring to attention of TV3 the need for them to tamper justice with mercy.

Nana Aba Anamoah who has been with TV3 for many years projecting the image of the Network was taken off air due to media reportage, alleged online information theft and unprofessional misrepresentation relating to her. Ghana’s comedy king DKB who doubles as a good friend of Nana Aba and guest Presenter of a comedy segment “Lighter Note” on TV3’s breakfast show “New Day” co-hosted by Nana Aba believes ” To err is human, to forgive is divine” hence the #bringbackNanaAba solidarity campaign.

He is therefore calling on the management of Tv3 to forgive and consider bringing Nana Aba Anamoah back on air. Other Celebrities including popular Radio Presenter Abeiku Santana of Okay FM, actor and movie producer Prince David Osei among others have pledged their support for the campaign.

AFIA SCHWARZENEGGER WRITES OPEN LETTER TO GENDER MINISTER

Afia Afiaschwarzenegger
Afia Afiaschwarzenegger

Radio and Television personality Afia Afiaschwarzenegger seems outraged by how the senior national female team the Black Queens are being treated by the Ghana Football Association and politicians after they won gold for Ghana.

The Queens who posted a 1-0 win over their Senegalese counterparts to annex the ultimate crown at the just ended all African games in Congo Brazzaville have still not received their bonus and have being staying at M-Plaza Hotel waiting to be paid since September 20, 2015.

This Afia believes is not fare because their male counterparts the Black Stars are always pampered by government officials and the GFA even though they have not been able to win any cup for about 3 decades now.

She has therefore called on the Gender Minister to intervene.

This is what Afia had to tell the Gender Minister:

The “Kokooko” hosted have sent an open to letter through social media to the Gender Minister to do something about it.

“Dear Minister of Gender, we were all in Ghana when our dear minister of sports flew money(bonus for black stars and Gfa) to Brazil which gained Ghana an international humiliation instead of the world cup and like an unrepentant witch we recently did the same to Kigale..We were here when some players refused to go to training be cos of their bonus

The black queens on the other hand worked their ass off to raise the flag of Ghana high only to return to be treated like hookers….left in a hotel be cos of what they deserve…what is rightfully theirs…Really???

Where did we get the money for the black stars? ?how long will men in power continue to disrespect and look down on women???Will they have treated them like this if they were their daughters???

Madam please ask ur colleague, the Minister of youth and sports to pay the women their bonus which we all know is peanut to avoid further embarrassment …Black queens brought Ghana gold …something that black stars can’t achieve in the next 10 years..They should be treated as the heroes they are.

ENOUGH OF INSULTS ON WOMEN…I rest my case!!!!!”
