The swearing in of Nana Yaw Amponsah as Chief Executive Officer of Kumasi Asante Kototo is being touted as the move that sealed the deal on an Mfanstipim Old Boys Association (MOBA) connection that promises to give a new lease of life to the management of the super club.

The other MOBA member on the board is none other than the CEO of RigWorld International Service, Dr. Kofi Amoa-Abban, whose membership of the board has widely been welcomed as a very valuable decision by the club owners.

Nana Yaw Amponsah, who was a 2019 Ghana Football Association (GFA) presidential candidate, has been widely endorsed by former Kotoko management members, National Circles Council and other supporters groups of the club due to his requisite experience in football administration.

Meanwhile, Dr. Kofi Amoa-Abban on Frida, before the unveiling of Nana Yaw Amponsah, tweeted to congratulate and pledged him his support but the question is, have you asked the connection despite the entire approval from the board?

Well, I write to unveil some long time relationship between Mr Kofi Abban and Nana Yaw Amponsah. They have been friends from Senior Secondary School (SSS) at Mfantipim at Cape Coast.

Kofi Abban and Nana Yaw Amponsah were mate and completed Mfantsipim in 2001 and they were good friends, virtually like brothers. They spent most of the time together at the library and always planned for the future. For me, it’s not surprising to me both have met at Kotoko to work together.

They maintained their respect and friendship and both were admitted at University of Ghana (UG). Their friendship moved to a different level at Legon due to the courses they were studying but nothing separated them apart.

To put a bit of smile in your face, Nana Yaw Amponsah was the one barbering Kofi Abban. The respect and understanding that existed between them was amazing.

Nana Yaw Amponsah graduated with Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and Political Science from the University of Ghana, Legon, and a Master’s Degree in Sports Law and Practice from the Leicester DE Montfort University, UK. He was also given the opportunity to pursue a PhD in Sports Leadership at Concordia University in the United States of America (USA). From 2008 to 2018, he was a Licensed Player Agent/Intermediary and transferred over 50 players from Ghana and almost 100 across the globe, which brought huge revenues to Ghanaian clubs in the process.

Meanwhile, Kofi Abban graduated with a degree in Psychology and pursued a master’s degree at Oslo University. In 2011, Kofi Amoa-Abban started Rigworld from a small office in Osu, Accra providing recruitment services to the burgeoning oil and gas industry in Ghana. Prior to that, he had served as a drill crew member with Atwood Hunter responsible for the TEAK1, TEAK 2, and Banda Wells. In July 2015 Kofi Amoa-Abban co-founded PressureTech, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rigworld International Services, which offers engineering solutions to Oil and Gas companies in Ghana and beyond.

After graduating successfully from University of Ghana, they maintained their friendship and consistently shared ideas together. When Nana Yaw Amponsah heard, Kofi Abban wanted to venture in Oil and Gas in the cooperate world, the former, Nana Yaw Amponsah was impressed with the decision of Mr Abban and pledged his support for him. After being successful in the corporate world, one person I am sure Kofi will never forget is Nana Yaw Amponsah. The support was amazing.

With both now working to restore the pride and reignite the club, supporters should not be surprised to see both of them working together than any of the board members. This is because of the long-standing relationship from school. Kotoko is a club that has a rich history and with Nana Yaw Amponsah and Kofi Abban a board member, I am convinced they will surely take the club places.

These are two big personalities we know with one in the football world and the other in the corporate world.

With Kofi Abban even offering to spend on the Muslim players of Asante Kotoko during the Eid-al Adha means, he is interested in the welfare of the club and with Nana Yaw Amponsah finally getting the nod as the new CEO of the club, Asante Kotoko will only get better and better together with all the board members.

Interesting enough, both men are the most youthful males in the boardroom of the club now and if we say youth represent vibrancy, innovation, new trends and modernization, then the youth following of the club will be expecting these two gentlemen to lead the way to the new light of a modern-day club.
