Anas threatens to quit his work if he loses the support of "discerning" people

The acclaimed Ghanaian investigative journalist has said the biggest threat to his job would be if he lost support of 'discerning minds.'

The award-winning documentary journalist was speaking in the first edition of a new magazine called, "People and Power."

In a report first filed by, Anas Aremeyaw Anas said that his work was only motivated by the fact that there were more good people than those he called "the bad guys."

Anas reassured in the interview that he has been monitoring media trends and so far, he has about 80 to 90% approval rating on social media.

This he said gives him the courage to continue not caring about the destructive criticisms from the supposed few.

As such, the investigative journalist pointed that the biggest threat to him if these "bad guys" control the public's opinion on me.

He is quoted as saying: "I’m more worried about people like you [the interviewer], who are discerning. And my message always goes to people like you.

If I lose people like you, I will quit journalism. So you look at the trends, the thoughts, the mannerisms.

For them [people who are not discerning], what you have today, it will take them another five years to get to this level, and don’t blame them too; the level of education, the IQ level...everything is confusing to them.
