Asante Kotoko CEO To Quit Job After GFA Ban

The Manhyia Palace is set to remove Nana Yaw Amponsah as the CEO of Premier League giants Asante Kotoko after the life patron of the club, Otumfuo Osei Tutu, was notified of the GFA’s decision to ban the administrator from all football activities for five years.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) wrote to the Manhyia Palace and the board of the Kumasi-based side on Thursday informing them of the decision of the Disciplinary Committee.

Amponsah, who doubles as director of Division One club Phar Rangers FC, is suffering the consequences of the decision of the club to pull out of the league without just cause.

According to Article 13(3) of the GFA Division One League Regulations, all directors of a club will be banned from all football activities for five years if their clubs pull out of GFA organized competitions without a just cause.

“That the Shareholders and Directors of Phar Rangers FC on the records are hereby also banned from all football activities for a period of five (5) years effective from this 2020/2021 football season in accordance with Article 13(3) of the GFA Division One League Regulations,” the ruling from the Disciplinary Committee of the GFA read.

This has sparked frantic efforts by the Manhyia Palace and the board of the club to start the search of a new CEO as Amponsah’s position has become untenable after an appeal on the stay of execution on the five-year ban was thrown out.

The decision by the Disciplinary Committee means that the former football agent will not be able to hold his position as the CEO of the Kumasi-based giants because he will not be qualified because of the ban.

The football administrator has to stay away from the game while fighting the ban decision at the Appeals Committee.

Phar Rangers have also been banned from playing in any competition in Ghana for five years and they will be relegated to the lowest tier of Ghana football on their return after the ban expires.
