Ex-GFA presidential aspirant George Afriyie has officially excluded himself from the discussion of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) role of Asante Kotoko.
In the previous week, the Executive Chairman of the club, Dr. Kwame Kyei dissolved the management team headed by then CEO, George Amoako.
A number of reports linked the vacant position to Afriyie, the President of Division One League side Okyeman Planners. Nana Yaw Amponsah was reportedly also considered for the huge task.
In an official statement on Thursday, George Afriyie revealed that he will not be able to take on the Kotoko job due to another commitment.
“In the aftermath of the GFA Presidential elections, I received several calls from Kotoko faithful and followers urging me to consider taking up the position of the CEO of the club. I still continue to receive such calls and messages on a daily basis.”
“Kotoko is a great club and I would want to serve one day. But, I want to state that I have currently taken up a commitment which would not permit me to take up the role”, the football administrator disclosed.
