Ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas says "over 95 per cent of the study I undertook has been supported by the committee."
He further stated that he was generally satisfied with the committee's report on his findings and he thinks they did a good job.
In reaction to the committee's findings on his footages, Anas explained that he told the committee that he worked for seven months instead of the two and half years they claim he did.
"We are not super heroes, we all depend on people so if i received materials from people, like I told the committee, what is wrong with that,” he questioned.
“Out of the over 400 footages that were used, its only one that they could identify that someone gave to me, then what are they talking about? I will gain more credibility if I told the public that I stayed at the Osu Children's Home for two and a half years but i stay there for only seven months," Anas emphasised.
The committee's recommendations which were made included the fact that the police should investigate into child abuse against Grace Ohene, a care giver, Akuamoa Boateng, a young adult of the home and Benjamine Amankwah of the boys remand probation home. The report said the staff
must be properly trained on how to provide non-corporal punishment and other forms of positive punishment.
About that part of the report, Anas said he thinks it is fair to introduce the police into the matter.
Meanwhile commending Anas for his good work, Egbert Faibille, the Managing Editor of the Ghanaian Observer newspaper noted that he was doing a great job for the country.
“Anas should continue to pursue the national agenda,” he said. He also noted that no matter how Anas obtained his findings, they turned out to be true so he did not understand what the committee meant by some of the footages provided were from other people.
