Nana Gyambibi Coker, the former General Manager of Asante Kotoko, has expressed his belief that both the board and management of the club have failed Otumfuo Osei II, the owner and bankroller of the team.
The current three-year mandate given to the board is set to expire in May, while the management’s mandate will end in August of this year.
When the board was inaugurated, they were entrusted with the task of making the club economically successful within a three-year period. However, according to Nana Coker, both the board and management have deviated from the mandate given to them by Manhyia (Otumfuo’s Palace).
As a special aide to Dr. Kwame Kyei, the board chairman, Nana Coker stated that they have let down Otumfuo by failing to fulfill their responsibilities.
“The board was appointed by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and they in turn appointed the management to run the club. However, it seems that things have been poorly handled,” he told Asempa FM.
“The board was given a document outlining their duties, and that document will be used to assess their performance. But it is not within my authority to comment on the board and management’s performance.
“I am aware of what was contained in the document, which is why I am refraining from evaluating their performance. The media can also monitor the work of the management and board.
“Their actions have been completely contrary to what they were instructed to do. The three-year period is coming to an end, and they have veered off track from their original mandate,” he added.
Meanwhile, Asante Kotoko, the defending champions of the Ghana Premier League, has had a challenging season. Currently sitting 6th on the league table with 44 points after 30 games, they will face Kotoku Royals in their 31st match at the Theatre of Dreams in Dawu.
