TV3 Suspends Nana Aba

TV3 news anchor and presenter Nana Aba has been asked to stop appearing on all on-air programmes at the station until further notice.
The suspension was officially announced in a press statement on Saturday. The station said the decision was necessitated by the recent allegation of “online information theft” levelled against Nana Aba.
Signed by Chief Executive Officer of TV3, Mr Augustus Dickson, the statement said “after preliminary investigations internally, and in accordance with TV3’s own commitment to the highest level of professionalism, Management has decided to take Nana Aba Anamoah off air until further notice.
“As a broadcast network that prides itself in upholding high ethical standards and delivering credible and trustworthy content to its viewers, TV3 would like to assure viewers and other key stakeholders that it shall continue to take all necessary steps to maintain such standards.”
“We expect guardians of our brand, particularly employees who we entrust to deliver content on air to our viewers, to ascribe to the company’s values wherever they are,” it added.
This comes at a time Ms Anamoah has lost a dad and is still in a period of mourning.
She has since not made any official comment on the development and her phones were either switched off or out of coverage area when NEWS-ONE attempted to reach her at press time Sunday.
Persons close to her claimed she was traumatised by the development and that she did not expect the issue to have dragged this far.
Nana Aba has been trending heavily on the various social media platforms and even in main stream media after she put a photo on her Twitter wall depicting herself at the Old Trafford stadium where Manchester United recently played Sunderland in a Premier League game.
Not long after Nana Aba’s photo started generating comments, someone claimed ownership of the photo and even provided the original shot to prove that what the journalist had published onTwitter was a piece of  forged work in which she had super-imposed her photo on someone’s image.
In what appears to be a response and a defence of the photo she published, Nana Aba made public her ticket to the match to prove that indeed she was at Old Trafford.
However, social media comments and discussions on the development compelled Nana Aba to render an apology for publishing the photo, describing her action as a joke gone bad.
Public opinion is split on the announcement of her suspension on Saturday: while one group has accused Management of TV3 of killing an ant with a sledge hammer, another has opined that Nana Aba’s claim that the incident was a joke is an afterthought.
