Asante Kotoko owner and Life Patron Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has appointed Professor Lydia Nkansah to chair a three-member committee to investigate the affairs of the club.

The Dean of the Faculty of Law at the Kwame Nkrumah of Science and Technology will be assisted by Kofi Owusu, a Registrar at the Ashanti Regional House of Chiefs and Lawrence Bruce Kyei, a legal practitioner.

The four-member committee has four weeks to submit a report to Manhyia for consideration.

Last week, the office of the Asantehene announced the Kyei's tenure as Executive Chairman had ended and the businessman submitted a report for his stewardship.

In the press statement signed by Chief of Staff Kofi Badu, the committee has been tasked to look into two main issues.

First, to investigate all the circumstances surrounding Asante Kotoko Sporting Club transactions with Tunisian Club Esperance which resulted in the FIFA ruling and the subsequent transfer of another Asante Kotoko player to the club.

And also, to investigate the failure of Asante Kotoko SC to meet its regulatory obligations to the Premier League licence.

From this development, it obvious that Kyei has been given the heave-ho after three years of running the club.
