Anas and ACILA to provide novel training in Investigative Journalism

Mr. Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Chief Executive Officer of Tiger Eye PI Media (Tiger Eye) and the US-based research and education think tank, Africa Center for International Law and Accountability (ACILA), will hold novel investigative journalism training programmes for practitioners in Ghana and the West Africa Sub-Region.

A statement signed jointly by Anas and Mr. William Nyarko, Executive Director of ACILA, said that the key objective of the training programmes is to enhance the capacity of participants in investigative reporting in order to provide accurate and reliable information to the public, promote accountability and transparency, contribute to good governance, rule of law, anti-corruption, and human rights.

Anas, winner of several international and national investigative journalism awards, said he was excited about the prospect of sharing the knowledge and techniques of his trade by offering training to other practitioners to enhance their capacity, adding that Ghana and West Africa need more investigative journalists to promote accountability, good governance, and human rights.

“I am also excited about the fact that these training programmes are in line with my goal of establishing a permanent institute in investigations in Ghana…Our collaboration with ACILA, especially with its Executive Director, two-time investigative journalist of the year, and who facilitated the maiden investigative journalism training programme in 2001 which I attended, provides a perfect mutual opportunity for both of us”, Anas said.

On his part, Nyarko said the training programmes are in line with ACILA’s public accountability mandate, adding that participants are the ones who will benefit the most from the Tiger Eye-ACILA collaboration.

“We have the demonstrated ability, capacity, techniques and delivery to transform even rookie investigative journalists into award-winning and world class investigative journalism standards”, Nyarko said.

The collaborators who promised more information in due course, announced that the first training session is expected to be held at the end of March in Ghana for which a few participants will be selected through a competitive process.
