Asante Kotoko Executive Chairman, Kwame Kyei, has been named Board Chairman of the club by the Manhyia Palace which is the seat of the clun’s owner and patron, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
The naming of a board chairman and a 9-member board for the club was done to meet the Ghana FA’s club licensing regulations that ask clubs to have functioning boards to run their affairs.
Kwame Kyei will be assisted by Mr. Jude Arthur in the Vice-Chairman position.
The other people on the board are Kwadwo Boateng Gyamfi, Kwasi Osei Ofori, Alhaji Lamine, Kwamena Mensah, Joseph Yaw Addo, Evelyn Nsiah Asare and Baffour Kwame Kusi.
The members of the board were chosen based on recommendations made by a three-member committee, led by Prof. Lydia Nkansah of the KNUST, put together by the Manhyia Palace earlier in May to look into the Kotoko-Esperance- Emmanuel Clottey transfer saga.
Here is the full statement from the Manhyia Palace released by the Palace’s media affiliate, Opemsuo FM:
