Nana Yaw Ampondah’s quest to become the next Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer (CEO) has hit a huge snag after Manhyia revealed he will ‘not’ be considered for the vacant post at the club.
Nana Yaw, who is the owner and bankroller of lower-tier side Phar Rangers met the newly constituted Kotoko board last week to roll out his vision and plan for the club if given the mandate to take over the reins from the old management.
According to information, he presented a five-year development plan which was well welcomed by the board.
However, snippets of his business plan have been leaked, and as well, circulating through the media with information emanating from his camp claiming he is on the verge of becoming the next Kotoko CEO.
Manhyia, according to reports is not enthused about the latest turn out of events from Nana Yaw’s camp and has thus pulled the plugs on him.
Confirming to the media is the special assistant to the Chief of Staff at Manhyia, Kwame Aboagye.
“We have heard the news circulating in the media that the Board of Directors has 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.”
“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 forgotten, 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.
