Nana Aba Anamoah Claims She Had A Headache That’s Why She Couldn’t Ask President Mahama A Direct Tough Question
Popular Ghanaian journalist-Nana Aba Anamoah became the subject of social media conversation following today’s President Mahama’s meeting with the media—with many saying, she asked the most absurd question of the day.
Senior journalists were selected by their respective employers to attend the important meeting and though it is not yet known which media house Nana Aba represented—her question has been described as the mostly useless of the day.
While others were quizzing the President on the two Gitmo detainees and the increase in fuel prices, the Nana Aba Anamoah in her manly voiced asked;
“Mr. President, what keeps you awake at night?” Perhaps, she wanted the President to say, “Madam Aba, thinking about you each night keeps me awake.”
According to GhanaCelebrities.Com, what Nana Aba did “feeds into a problem on the local scene, where reporters rather than challenging politicians, asking them questions and follow up questions- they rather prefer schmoozing up to them to maintain favour.
It’s a rotten mentality of the press which has bred politicians who have no respect for the people, knowing they can lie on air and get away with it without any rebuke. It is an issue bigger than Nana Aba’s gaffe this afternoon, but a journalist with the ‘reputation’ of Nana Aba Anamoah should not be feeding into it.”
After the blogs and social media jumped on her case, Nana Aba Anamoah has told Hello FM in Kumasi in a phone interview that she had a migraine—a serious headache which affected her ability to process her contemplated question.
She said the headache could be due to the a bottle of chilled ‘Sobolo’ she enjoyed while driving to the meeting.
She however assured Ghanaians that, the next time she gets another opportunity, she will ask relevant direct questions.
