Manhyia Palace has turned down the imminent appointment of the 2019 Ghana Football Association elections Presidential candidate as the Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko.
Founder and Bankroller of Division One League club Phar Rangers, Nana Yaw Amponsah who was in line for top position at the Ghana Premier League giants has been rejected.
Earlier last week, Nana Amponsah had an interview with the newly constituted Board of Directors in Accra after being emerged as the possible candidate for the position.
Asante Kotoko has been without a Chief Executive Officer after the George Amoako led management team was dissolved few weeks ago by the club’s Board of Directors.
Special Assistant to the Chief of staff of the Manhyia Palace, Kwame Aboagye Mensah revealed in an interview with Opemsuo FM that Nana Yaw Amponsah is not a candidate for the vacant Chief Executive Officer job at Asante Kotoko.
“We have heard the news circulating in the media that the Board of Directors have settled on him [Nana Yaw Amponsah]. It’s not true and I repeat it’s not true,” Kwame Aboagye Mensah told Opemsuo FM in an exclusive interview.
“Everyone should take note that Asante Kotoko is a big brand and it can’t work with someone who is not secretive”
“Being interviewed by the Board of Directors and the next hour everything said during the meeting is in the media….how can we work with such individual” he quizzed.
“If people have forgot, let me remind that of Osei Kuffour who publicly said he’s the new President of Asante Kotoko. Was Osei Kuffour appointed to lead Asante Kotoko after all the interviews. It’s a big no”
“We have plans for the club and announcements are not to be made by the public but His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II” he concluded.
