The Management of Kotoko has announced that it has noted with regret, media reports that Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, prevailed upon the Board of Directors and Management not to slap a court injunction on the league in the Obed Owusu-Hearts case.
According to the management, the Great King had nothing to do with that decision; “Nana does not and will not be involved in issues which border on the day-today administration of the club”.
In a statement it appealed to the media that while management cannot determine what is newsworthy for them, it would appreciate if Otumfuo’s name is not dragged into the issue – “let alone be accompanied with twisted facts. Nana should be accorded the needed reverence”.
The statement said the club will not hesitate to take action against any media house or personality who denigrates the name of the Asantehene.
“The Board of Directors and management wish to reiterate that they will not rest until the six points are restored.
“We assure our fans that patience is a solid rock upon which Kotoko have pinned its hope.”
“When the Ghana Football Association (GFA)’s Appeals Committee releases its verdict, we are confident we will move to our deserved second spot on the 2014/15 First Capital Plus Premier League table”, it added.
