Paul Adu-Gyamfi, a legal practitioner has been named Acting Chairman of Kumasi Asante Kotoko following the resignation of Dr Kofi Kodua Sarpong.
Adu-Gyamfi, a former President of the Ghana Bar Association (GBA) was elevated to the top position at a meeting by the Board on Monday, to discuss issues relevant to the progress of the club.
A highly placed source has informed GNA Sports that the legal practitioner will serve in that capacity until the owner of the club, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, makes a pronouncement on the future direction of the current league champions.
The Porcupine Warriors have been without a Board chair since Dr. Sarpong tendered his resignation last week to the Life Patron, a development which has shaken the foundation of the club.
The meeting according to the source was attended by seven board members excluding Kabral Blay-Amihere (Chairman, National Media Commission) and Madam Agnes Osei.
Also discussed were the financial status of the club, recruitment for next season as well as the future of head coach Mas-Ud ‘Didi’ Dramani.
Meanwhile, the Board has resolved to participate in the Top Four tournament; organized by the Ghana League Clubs Association and features the top four clubs at the end of last season.
Other participants for the Top Four are Berekum Chelsea, Medeama and Ebusua Dwarfs.
Kotoko has been the news in recent times with revelations on the transfer of players the bedrock of the headlines.
