REJOINDER,

ACCRA 30 JUNE 2015.

 

POINT OF CORRECTION SIR/MADAM
 
My attention has been drawn to an article published by ghanaweb.com, quoting your website, pulse.com.gh as its source.
 
The said story with a headline "I nearly committed suicide - Gifty Anti", purported that I, GIFTY Anti told Anita Erskine, host of The One Show on Viasat 1, that I nearly committed suicide due to peer pressure.
 
I will like to categorically state that this report is absolutely false.
 
Though I was on the said programme on 28th June, 2015, at no point did Anita Erskine even ask me about my growing up days and neither did I talk about my growing up days or how I was affected by peer pressure.
 
There was no point during the interview did I mention that "I nearly committed suicide".
 
As a trained journalist myself, who has been in this industry for over 18 years, I do understand that we do make mistakes sometimes.
 
I therefore, hope that you will correct this mis-reportage and also ensure that the other websites that picked up the story from you will also do same.
 
I look forward to us working together to better our journalism,/media/blogging profession so the younger ones can also get it right.
 
Thank you for your cooperation.

 

 

Apology by the Author of the said story

 

As the writer of the said story, I render an unqualified apology to Ms. Gifty Anti for the mis-reportage.

I actually watched “The One” show hosted by Anita Erskine on Viasat 1 on Sunday, June 28, 2015 but during the interview, I went out to attend to an emergency call.

When I came back, I didn’t know that Gifty had completed her interview, so I mistook the next guest for Gifty because I didn’t get closer to the TV set but listened to the interview.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Thank you.
