Joseph Yaw Adu denies appointment as Kotoko's new CEO

Published on: 05 July 2020

Board Member of Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Joseph Yaw Adu has denied being given the role as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the club. 

The former Sports Director at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is one of 12 persons appointed to serve on a new board formed by His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

Today, several reports indicated that Mr. Joseph Yaw Adu has been appointed as the new CEO of Asante Kotoko, replacing George Amoako who last served in that capacity.

Reacting to the news in an interview with Kumasi FM, the sports administrator has noted that there is no truth in it.

“I'm surprised to hear this, I'm still a board member so how come there are saying I have been appointed as the club CEO.  Take such news as false news", Mr. Joseph Yaw Adu said.

Meanwhile, the board of directors will soon appoint a CEO for the Porcupine Warriors club to help ensure the club in its quest to rub shoulders with the elite clubs on the continent.
