Nana Yaw Amponsah is set to step down as the CEO of Ghanaian football giant Asante Kotoko with immediate effect after he was slapped with a five-year ban by the Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The decision by the Disciplinary Committee means that the former football agent will not be able to hold his position as the CEO of the Kumasi-based club.
Amponsah has three days to appeal the decision at the Appeals Committee of the GFA.
Nana Yaw Amponsah, who doubles as a Director of division One club Phar Rangers FC, is suffering the consequences of the decision of the club to pull out of the league without a just cause.
Phar Rangers announced their decision to pull out of the Division One League early this month as well as withdrawing from all GFA Competitions with immediate effect.
The Disciplinary Committee deliberated the matter before coming to the conclusion that all provisions of the GFA regulations must be enforced including banning their directors for five years.
“That the Shareholders and Directors of Phar Rangers FC on the records are hereby also banned from all football activities for a period of five (5) years effective from this 2020/2021 football season in accordance with Article 13(3) of the GFA Division One League Regulations,” the ruling from the Disciplinary Committee of the GFA read on Wednesday.
Attached is the full verdict of the Disciplinary Committee of the GFA.
