"Management of AICC informed Tiger Eye through our agent on Saturday, 12 November 2022, that the venue is no longer available for use on the said dates."

The decision of AICC's management to cancel the event, the statement added, has been made despite the fact that:

"Tiger Eye has already fulfilled every requirement of AICC to use the place including payment for the venue despite last minute change in cost by about per cent (30%)."

Notwithstanding the setback, Anas and his team are determined to find a new venue for the public showing while also assuring that all tickets still hold valid.

"We would like to apologise to the public for the inconvenience in change of venue. Our agent is securing another auditorium and we will update the public soon on the new venue," the statement said.

What is Anas' Galmsey Economy about?

As the title Galamsey Economy suggests, Anas' latest investigative piece focuses on the activities of galamsey (illegal mining) in the country.

Just as all his works do, the Galamsey Economy is expected to expose the activities of illegal miners and their collaborators.
