Legendary player Opoku Nti has stepped up with a loud call for unity and dedication in the wake of the formation of an Interim Management Committee (IMC) to temporarily oversee the business of Asante Kotoko.
Nti underscores the urgent need for all stakeholders to unite and go above and beyond in their commitment to lead Asante Kotoko to greater heights as the club approaches a critical point in its history.
Nana Apinkra Akwasi Awua, the Kontomponiaferehene, and a chartered accountant is one of the IMC’s four members.
James Kwesi Appiah, the previous coach of the Black Stars, Dr. Prosper Narteh Ogum, the new head coach, and Emmanuel Newton Dasoberi, the administrative manager, round up the group.
“I believe that the entire Kotoko fraternity let Nana down because of the significant part that our prior supporters had in some of the things we did. If the supporters are not there, it is extremely tough to operate, therefore if you look at the system where we give it to one person to manage that was what was done for a long time until we started appointing a board with different people, that is what we did until we started selecting a board with other people,” he said on Peace FM as heard on alphatrending.com.
“This led to misunderstandings that caused a lot of issues, and some supporters were split into factions. If management shows up, they will be supportive and will go on radio stations to talk about how we have all failed Asanteman.
“While others ask why Otumfuo doesn’t invest in the team, are we willing to safeguard his funds given that Kotoko is a part of us and is supported by us?”
“It’s not just about the money someone will make. Therefore, I believe it is now time for the entire Kotoko fraternity to awaken, support, leave everything behind them, and start going back to pick the best to return the team to the level that we know it was.
