Former Asante Kotoko National Circles Council Chairman, Kwaku Amponsah affectionately known as K5 has admonished the club’s Chief Executive Officer, Nana Yaw Amponsah to avoid the appointment of any former management member of the club into his new management team.
Nana Yaw Amponsah was unveiled as the new CEO of the Porcupine Warriors on August 7, 2020. He is, however, yet to name the management team he will be working with the next three years.
Reports in the local media are that former General Manager of the side, Nana Gyambibi Coker has been handed the role of Operations Manager.
A report many followers of the club rejected, insisting they do not want to see any old face in the yet-to-be-announced management team of the club.
And, Chairman K5 has echoed the supporters’ grievances in an interview with Kumasi-based Hello FM.
“If we want to ensure the current administration work peacefully he should not appoint any old management member to be part of the new management team.
He admonished all the stakeholders of Ghanaian giants to put an end to the unnecessary politics in the team which has halted their progress.
“The politics within the team is too much. We should put an end to the factions in the team. I support the idea of appointing only new people to occupy the positions in management.
“Otumfuo’s statement during the inauguration of the board of directors indicated that we should start from ground zero. So, it means the previous management failed. Why should they be appointed again after failing us?
He continued, “For me, I support the appointment of new people and I know Nana Yaw Amponsah has some people in mind having met the board to sell his ideas to them.
He urged all the stakeholders of the club to rally behind the CEO to succeed.
“We should all come together as one family and support him to succeed.”
