KUMASI Asante Kotoko outspoken Accra representative, Edmund Ackah, has declared his support for newly-appointed Chief Executive officer (CEO) and former Ghana international Samuel Osei Kuffour.
Life patron of Kotoko, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has already given the former Bayern Munich defender the mandate to manage the affairs of the Kumasi-based club, following the decision to relieve Opoku Nti, who anchored the former administration, of its duties.
In an interview with Happy FM, an Accra-based radio station, Ackah said Kuffuor was capable of assuming the position, adding that “I’m sure if he could not do the job, Otumfuo wouldn’t have called him.
“Before Otumfuo calls you for the job, then he strongly believes you can deliver,” he stated.
Ackah also asserted that he was ready to support Kuffuor to achieve the best for Kotoko.
In a related development, the outgoing CEO Opoku Nti has also thrown his support behind Sammy Kuffour to lead the club back to where it belongs.
He asserted that “we all want the best for the club and will support Kuffour in any way we can to help the team progress.”
Nti, the newly-elected Ghana Football Association (GFA) Executive Committee member, thanked Otumfuo Osei Tutu for the opportunity he gave to him to lead one of the best clubs in Africa and also wished the team the best in its endeavours.
