The much-talked about incoming Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko, Nana Yaw Amponsah has been rejected as a candidate for the top job at the Kumasi-based outfit.
Special Assistant to the Chief of staff of the Manhyia Palace, Kwame Aboagye Mensah revealed in an interview with Kumasi-based media outlet 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 secrecy” he stressed.
“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 questioned.
“If people have forgotten, let me remind them 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.
It appears the pomp and pageantry surrounding the imminent appointment of the Phar Rangers financier is bound to hit a snag.
