Lawyer George Ankomah Mensah, Vice chairman of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Club Licensing Board has hinted that Asante Kotoko will be sanctioned for failing to meet the deadline in constituting the Executive Board.
Asante Kotoko were directed to constitute an Executive Board by the Club Licensing Board per the Club Licensing regulations to ensure all clubs are run professionally.
Kotoko failed to meet the deadline which was set on April 1 and submitted a letter to Ghana Football Association for an extension.
The letter was written by Manhyia Palace on behalf of the club to the FA.
Lawyer Ankomah Mensah in an interview on Happy FM hinted despite the letter from Manhyia to request for an extension to constitute the Board, Kotoko has defaulted and they may be sanctioned.
“Any team that does not adhere to the regulations is given a reminder. Later followed by a sanction if they fail to meet the deadline. The regulation specify what must be done.
“From my perspective we see all clubs with the same status or as equals. we don’t discriminate. If a certain condition is given and they fail to fulfill we see it as a default. We don’t look at who it is or it is not”, he ended.
