Why I Resigned From TV3 – Nana Aba Anamoah
News caster and TV presenter, Nana Aba Anamoah, on Monday, resigned from TV3, a television broadcaster in Ghana.
The action comes after the ‘Diva’ host was suspended following controversies that emerged on social media when pictures she tweeted suggesting she was at Old Trafford to watch her favourite team Manchester United turned out not to be hers.
In a statement released by the media house on Saturday, October 3, 2015, TV3 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”.
In her resignation letter, which was leaked to the media, Nana Aba expressed disappointment at the decision to suspend her, describing it as a sign of “ingratitude” on TV3’s part.
The letter further stated: “My firm belief, unquestionable loyalty and commitment to the TV3 brand have never been in doubt. Indeed, I did everything humanly possible to guard jealously, protect firmly and stand by TV3 through thick and thin; an action that has earned me many foes within my social circles. I tried to resign on a number of occasions to pursue other Interests or further academic studies but TV3 persuaded me to defer my decision on all occasions. Out of respect, I obliged.
I however, find the decision by the management and board of TV3 to suspend me rather disappointing and a sign of ingratitude from an organization that I have committed twelve years of my adult life to.
For something I consider peripheral and not even remotely connected to the elements of my job (which I have delivered with uttermost capability). I was expecting the management and board to be more circumspect in their decision making…”
