Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has retained Mr Kwame Kyei as chairman of the Asante Kotoko Board of Directors after constituting a new board to see to the affairs of the club.
In a statement, the Asantehene said Mr Kyei was retained because he has been the sole financier of the club for the past three years.
The businessman’s tenure as Executive Chairman of the club expired in December 2019 but submitted a report of his stewardship in April.
”Dr. Kwame Kyei, Chairman of Unity Oil Group is retained as Chairman of the Board in recognition of the fact that he has single-handedly financed the Club’s operations over the past three years,” the statement read.
”However, he will now work in a corporate setting with a Board carefully chosen to blend continuity with a combination of corporate dynamism and integrity, financial prudence and professional expertise.”
The nine-member board of the porcupine warriors has also been charged to rebuild the club’s brand as a sporting and self-sustaining economic entity.
Below are the new members of Asante Kotoko Board of Directors:
Dr Kwame Kyei Chairman, Unity Group
Jude Arthur (Board Chairman for Ghana Commercial Bank)
