News that the Manhyia Palace has turned down the imminent appointment of Nana Yaw Amponsah as the Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko has been rubbished.
News were rife on Monday, June 29 that the Special Assistant to the Chief of Staff of the Manhyia Palace, Kwame Aboagye Mensah indicated that Nana Yaw Amponsah is not a candidate for the vacant Chief Executive Officer job at Asante Kotoko following his comments on Opemsuo Radio.
“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.
“Everyone should take note that Asante Kotoko is a big brand and it can’t work with someone who is not secrecy”
“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.
These comments have been the talk of town as many have registered their disappointments in the news.
However, Kwame Aboagye Mensah in an interview with Kumasi-based Kessben FM has debunked such claims, stating that the founder and Bankroller of Division One League club Phar Rangers, Nana Yaw Amponsah is still a candidate for the top position at the club.
He further stated that, the decision to appoint the Chief Executive Officer for the club solely depends on the shoulders of the Board of Directors and Manhyia cannot interfere.
Kwame Aboagye also advised that, information about the club should not be in the public domain going forward for the betterment of the club.
Meanwhile, the Board of Directors informed Nana Yaw Amponsah to wait till next month, August 2020 before any decision could be made on him after their meeting in Accra last week to present his plans for the club.
