Businessman and Politician Paul Awentami Afoko has disclosed that he is ever prepared to serve the occupant of the golden stool, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II in any capacity.
Reports have gone viral that Mr Afoko has been penciled as the next Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Kumasi-based premier league side, Asante Kotoko.
But speaking to the issue on a Kumasi-based radio station, his spokesperson Nana Yaw Osei said the reports are mere rumors as there has not been any approach from the Manhyia Palace or its assignees to that effect.
“I know he reveres and respect the Otumfuo immensely and will never disappoint him if duty calls. I can also tell you that no one has approached Mr Afoko in respect of the matter. It is a rumor which i also heard a couple of days ago”, he said.
He described Mr Afoko as a staunch supporter of the porcupines warriors who will be willing to accept and execute any duty the respected King will assign him.
Nana Yaw Osei however rebutted claims Mr Afoko has no experience in managing football clubs and therefore not suitable for the job stating one does not require such an experience before he assumes the position.
According to him, there have been several managers who achieved laurels for the great club yet had little or no experience in club management.
“I believe that Mr Afoko when assigned any role executes it to the best of his ability which is mostly applauded. I know that should the rumour turn out to be true, he will give off his best and make Kotoko go places”, he emphasized.
