Asante Kotoko under the auspices of Manhyia Palace has requested for a two-weeks grace period in order to put a board together to align with the GFA Club Licensing Regulations, according to reports gathered by Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM.

The Porcupine Warriors were initially fined a sum of GHS 5000 by the Club Licensing Board for failing to meet the administrative requirements of the regulations and were on the cusp of receiving a stiffer punishment with a possible demotion looming.

But a timely intervention by the Manhyia Palace wrote to the Ghana Football Association citing the novel coronavirus and the excesses of the lockdown as the impediments blocking them from confirming the names of the board of directors.

Sources close to Oyerepa FM discloses that Manhyia Palace has asked for a two-weeks extra time as the Chief of staff meets the proposed members of the board.
