Former President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E John Agyekum Kufour, has urged the newly appointed Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of Asante Kotoko, Nana Yaw Amponsah, to make the club economically viable.
The club’s former Chairman, says the development of the team depends on leadership managing it scientifically and making it financially resourceful.
The former state man said this when the new CEO called on him at his residence in Accra on Tuesday 8th September, 20200.
Speaking to Nana Yaw Amponsah, whose visit formed part of his engagement tour after his appointment, Mr. Kufour reiterated the need for the commercialization of the club.
With his experience as our former Chairman and Head of State, Ex-President Kufour said it is important that Management adopts ‘a more scientific approach towards the operations of the club.’
Nana Yaw Amponsah was unveiled as our CEO in August 2020 and is tasked to develop the Porcupines into a resourceful modern club.
Tuesday’s visit to Ex-President Kufour was to afford the CEO the opportunity to gather some experience and useful advice from the statesman.
Nana Yaw Amponsah has already had similar meetings with former Chairman and Bantamahene, Baffour Owusu Amankwatia VI, known in private life as Sylvester Asare Owusu, and former Executive Chairman and current Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, Dr. Kofi Kodua Sarpong.
