- There are reports Anas was bribed to kick out the former MD of Unibank
- MyNewsgh.com has reported on how a former finance minister paid Anas to embark on such an assignment

Unconfirmed reports reaching YEN.com.gh claim that the investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was allegedly bribed to pursue the former MD of Unibank, Felix Nyarko-Pong.
According to MyNewsgh.com, a former finance minister under the erstwhile Mills administration, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor Snr, took this decision after efforts to have his son, Kwabena Duffuor Jnr in the MD position failed.
The plot to allegedly kick-out the MD of Unibank, MyNewsgh.com claims, started with a fully-paid trip to Dubai with the MD and Anas (posing as a businessman).

"Anas Armeyaw Anas’ relationship with the former Minister of Finance Dr. Kwabena Duffuor dates back to the Mills Era when the government, with Dr Duffuor Snr then as Finance Minister sponsored Anas for some work at the Ports." the online portal is quoted as claiming.
The online portal traced this allegation to a radio interview that the embattled Hot FM host, Justice Annan, had with a man believed to be Felix Nyarko-Pong.
MyNewsGH.com deduced from the interview that Duffuor Jnr had risen to become the Chief Operating Officer of Unibank and his father wanted him to take over.
The official reason Unibank gave for Duffuor Jnr’s takeover as M.D. then was that “Felix Nyarko Pong decided not to extend his contract which ended last week.” An official release claimed.
