“I thank management of company for the opportunity to work with what in my view is the most credible, influential, impactful and daring media organistion in Ghana. I thank them for their support and encouragement all these years.”
He added that he will “continue to serve Ghana as a freelance investigative journalist and dedicate more time to the writing of books.”
Manasseh has been under the spotlight since the premier of his militia documentary some months ago.
The investigative piece, titled ‘Militia in the Heart of the nation’, was premiered in March on both radio and television.
The content of the documentary suggested the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government was secretly training a militia group, called De-Eye Group, at the Osu Castle.
However, the government took exception to the claims and subsequently petitioned the National Media Commission (NMC) over the matter.
The NMC, in its ruling, said the use of some photos and footage in the documentary were not properly related to the original focus of the story.
