Washington Times "Cooked" Story

KOJO YANKAH

The WASHINGTON TIMES story on the General News of 5th December, 2005 quotes a Kojo Yanko as director of the African Institute of Journalism and Communications as commenting on the Ghana Economy.

There is no Kojo Yanko at the Institute. The closest familiar name is that of Kojo Yankah, who is the President of the Institute. As far as I can remember, no reporter from Washington Times has ever interviewed me. The closest anybody claiming to be writing for Washington Post spoke to me was about two months ago, and the gentleman and the lady (whose names I have forgotten) wanted my assistance to interview Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Asantehene, which did not materialize. It is a shame if a newspaper of the reputation of Washington Times is parading reporters who can manufacture stories to suit their whims. I totally deplore such acts of unprofessional conduct.
