Barring any catastrophic and seismic change of event, Kumasi Asante Kotoko will today appoint Nana Yaw Amponsah as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Ghanaweb is reliably informed that Mr Amponsah who takes over from George Amoako will be given a three-year mandate to steer affairs at the club.

His appointment has been in the works for some time now, but it hit a snag at a point and appeared to be off only for it to resurface again and get the approval of those who matter in the running of Kotoko.

It is a big job for someone relatively young. Nana Yaw Amponsah is under 40 years, and despite his dynamism and drive, it is fair to say this would be his biggest job yet.

Those who know him say he is passionate and driven and has the right connections to make Kotoko a model and modern club.

Nana Yaw Amponsah has been in Ghana football for a while now but he rose to prominence during last year’s Ghana Football Association Presidential elections.

Despite his young age, he mounted a strong campaign and fought a good fight. Despite finishing third in the race itself, the campaign period and FA Presidential Debate revealed his potential as a man destined for greatness.
