Drama Over Accra International Conference Center Venue
There was initial drama when it emerged yesterday that Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI Team have been denied the opportunity to premiere the said documentary at the AICC.
Anas had revealed that just two days to the advertised event, the managers of the AICC informed his team that the venue was no longer available for their use even though, according to the Investigative journalist, his team had paid for the venue and even paid a later 30% increase by cheque.
The situation was later cleared up after managers of the AICC finally gave a green light for the event to go on as planned following a directive from the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration.
