Osei Kuffour, Alhaji Lamini set to join Asante Kotoko management

Former Ghana defender Samuel Osei Kuffour and Tema-based businessman, Alhaji Abu Lamini are set to be named as part of Asante Kotoko’s management according to reports in the local media.

The reports further indicate that, Dr. Kwame Kyei, Executive Chairman of Asante Kotoko will soon name the two respected personalities as part of his management.

Kuffour, who was on the verge of being named the president of the club by Life Patron Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, but was swatted aside after it popped up in the media before the official announcement, a practice that the Otumfuo was no happy with.

For Alhaji Lamini, he’s been a former board and management member of the club, and continues to provide financial and logistic support for the team in a number of ways.

The appointments, if done, will be Dr. Kyei’s first major appointments a year after assuming office and forming a skeletal management body.

This will however not be the first time Kuffour and Alhaji Lamini will be in Kotoko leadership positions.

While Alhaji Lamini – a popular Kotoko benefactor was a Board member in the Dr. K. K. Sarpong administration, Kuffour served also as a member of the Paul Adu-Gyamfi Board.
