According to the former general manager of Asante Kotoko, Dr. Kwame Kyei won’t decline the chance to stay on as the club’s employee.
The 12-member board of directors chairman, Dr. Kyei, has expired.
The board, however, has been disbanded by Manhyia, and this week is when they should submit their final reports for their three-year term.
Nana Gyambib Coker, however, reports that Kwame Kyei is willing and prepared to command the club if Manhyia calls upon him once more.
“For the time being, I will claim that Dr. Kwame Kyei is my father; nevertheless, I am unable to confirm or deny whether he will continue to serve as Kotoko’s board chairman or become the company’s executive chairman. I have read and seen rumors to that effect in the media, but I am unable to comment on such information,” he stated in an interview with Kumasi’s Akoma FM.
“Should His Royal Majesty call on him anytime, he (Dr. Kwame Kyei) will happily and willingly accept the call, for he cannot turn his back on Manhyia as a true son of Asanteman and a servant of the Golden stool.”
Coker also made it clear that Dr. Kwame Kyei’s son, not the doctor, is the team’s owner rather than the newly upgraded Nations FC.
He further disclosed that Asante Kotoko’s interests were the primary motivation behind Dr. Kwame Kyei’s purchase and restoration of the Dr. Kwame Kyei sports complex in Abrankese.
“Let me use this opportunity to dispel any misinformation about the real owner of Nations Football Club, Dr. Kyei. Nations FC is for Dr. Kyei’s two children, not himself, and the Dr. Kyei Complex is his private property. His primary motivation in purchasing and renovating the stadium was to protect Kotoko’s interests.
A new board of directors and management group are anticipated to be named in the future days as the Porcupine Warriors get ready for the 2019 season.
Frederick Acheampong, an executive council member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), is likely to be named Asante Kotoko’s CEO if Dr. Kwame Kyei is kept on as the board chairman.
