Nana Aba Anamoah leaves TV3; says she’s been wanting to leave for years

News Anchor Nana Aba Anamoah has resigned from private television network TV3 after Twitter brouhaha.

This comes after the ‘Diva Show’ host was suspended by her employer following her alleged involvement in an “online information and photo theft.”

A statement signed by the company’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Augustus Dickson 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.”

Nana Aba Anamoah trended on twitter for at least two consecutive days but for the wrong reason. She received an avalanche of backlash for twitting an image that wasn’t hers.

People photoshopped her image and made fun of her on social media for her tweet.

She subsequently tweeted to apologise for her conduct: “My intention was not to steal someone’s pictures as mine. Absolutely not.”

She followed with another: “Sorry to all who got offended by that joke. It was all meant to be an innocent prank.”

Though apologetic, her employer thought her conduct could not go unpunished and suspended her.

“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,” the statement noted.

“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 whatever they are.”

After making an audacious move to Old Trafford and sharing pictures and videos from the stadium ostensibly to prove that she is capable paying for a ticket to watch a Manchester United match, the controversial show host returned to Ghana with thing in mind, to move on.

She tendered in her resignation letter in the morning of Monday, November 2, 2015.

She told a source she had been wanting to resign from the network for two years now but each time she makes the move, she is talked out of it.

Last year, after making part-payment for her fees in preparation to go to school, she abandoned the plans after management of the station appealed to her to defer her plans.

After the twitter row and subsequent suspension, she thought it is time to finally move on.

Nana Aba Anamoah most likely will be appearing on a television screen near you but certainly not that of TV3.
