A top member of Asante Kotoko’s Supporters Body, Kwadwo Asante has advised Club Chief Executive Officer Nana Yaw Amponsah to peacefully tender in his resignation at the end of the current season.
The stauch supporters’ call for the CEO’s resignation comes after what he says are observations he has made before, during and after the Super Clash loss to big rivals Accra Hearts of Oak last Sunday.
He claims Nana Yaw Amponsah has provoked the hostility of the current Kurt E. S. Okraku led Ghana Football Association with his needless utterances and actions while heading the Asante Kotoko Management team.
He further said that under Nana Yaw’s reign, Asante Kotoko has made more enemies because of the above and the fortunes of the club will look grim so far as he continues in his role.
Kwadwo Asante is the Protocol Officer for the National Circles Committee (Kotoko’s main supporters group) and he made these pronouncements while speaking to Kumasi-based Ash FM in an interview.
“I know most Kotoko fans would not agree with me but after this season, Nana Yaw Amponsah should humbly resign and leave the club,” Asante told Ash FM.
“Asante Kotoko will suffer with Nana Yaw Amponsah if the current Ghana FA administration under Kurt Okraku continues for the next 5 or 10 years.
“I would advise Nana Yaw Amponsah to even stay away from football. Football is not the only employment avenue for him. He should look elsewhere. If he spends ten years at Kotoko, Kotoko will suffer for ten years,” he concluded.
In his first year, Nana Yaw Amponsah has had mixed results as CEO. With a flurry of sponsorships coming in, the club has not really been financially sound with lingering issues of unpaid bonuses and fees of coaches and players.
The club has also had 3 coaching coaches in barely a year. Following the loss to Hearts of Oak, the league title looks a forgone conclusion although all is not lost yet.
The club has also made the last 16 of the MTN FA CUP.
