The documentary implicated two lecturers of the University of Ghana and others from the University of Lagos in Nigeria. Speaking on Joy FM’s current affairs show Saturday, Mr Baako said Anas declined to be part of project, citing other projects he is involved in as the reason he rejected the offer.
“There is no Anas in there because it wasn’t as if an opportunity did not exist for an Anas to be in there, but Anas declined to be part of this particular project. [This is] because he is doing so many other things and I did not want an Anas to be in there,” he explained on Newsfile.
“BBC are capable…in fact when it comes to infrastructural, logistical and all those things they have more than Tiger Eye especially BBC Africa Eye…there is a close relationship between Tiger Eye and BBC Africa Eye though.”
