The Porcupine Warriors owner is believed to have surmoned the club’s highest decision body to appear before him for deliberations
Asante Kotoko owner OtumfoƆ Osei Tutu II is believed to have scheduled an emergency meeting with the club’s board of directors at Manhyia Palace in Kumasi on Saturday, according to AshesGyamera.com‘s sources.
All interested parties have been duly notified of the meeting which kicks off exactly at 11 am on Saturday.
This has become necessary following the alleged bad blood between board chairman Osikani Kwame Kyei and chief executive officer Nana Yaw Amponsah as well as a section of the board members.
It is believed that Osikani Kyei has deliberately excused himself from the last two board meetings held to plan the future of the club because of some misunderstanding between him and the CEO which he believes the latter has the backing of some of the board members.
Although, Kotoko are expected to kick start their pre-season ahead of the commencement of Ghana Premier League in October, a lot of things seem not working as the future of even the club’s head coach Mariano Baretto is unknown.
Also, several first team players are having contracts which will expire in the coming months with no negotiations for an extension done because of the uneasiness among the leaders.
Moreover, Kotoko’s recruitments have been slow this season than ever with the club officially yet to sign even one player less than six weeks to the start of new season.
Reports suggest that even the supporters leadership has even been divided making things murkier than expected some few weeks ago.
All the twelve board members including vice chairman Jude Arthur, Kwadwo Boateng Gyamfi, Alhaji Abu Lamin, Kwamena Mensah and Joseph Yaw Addo are expected to arrive at Manhyia with Kwame Kyei before the meeting with Otumfuo commences.
The others include Evelyn Nsiah Asare, Baffour Kwame Kusi, Kofi Amoah Abban, Martin Osei Kwaku Brobbey and James Osei Brown.
One of the major issues to be discussed will be the alleged grand agenda to run Kotoko down by one private radio station in Kumasi owned by the board chairman and the lawsuit on the radio station by board member Evelyn Nsiah Asare for allegedly tarnishing her hard won reputation.
