The National Circles Council (NCC) of Asante Kotoko have been asked to suspend certain activities until further notice.
Manhyia Palace has suspended certain activities of the National Circles Council of Asante Kotoko SC until the three-member Committee set up by Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II complete its work.
The mother body of the supporters group of the ‘Reds’ have been directed to put on hold certain activities since the Prof. Lydia Nkansah led Committee is working on the functions of identifiable groups within Asante Kotoko SC.
Three key groups of Asante Kotoko SC, the Circles, Asante Kotoko Old Players Association (AKOPA), and Kotoko Ladies lost their positions on the newly constituted Board of Directors for the Porcupines.
Addressing the issue on Opemsuo 104.7 FM, Personal Assistant to the Chief of Staff, Kwame Aboagye Mensah said, “Manhyia Palace has directed that certain activities of the National Circles Council should be put on hold until the Three-Member Committee finish their work because the Committee is working on institutional representation”.
“We are mindful of how the Circles operate in an anticipation to better the focal status of the club, but we have realized that some of the things they are embarking on conflict with the functions of Management hence the need to prorogue certain activities"
“For their meetings, they can go for it,” he concluded.
In 2019, the Asante Kotoko Circles elected Christopher Dameyeh as the Chairman to lead the supporter group until 2023.
Kickgh.com understands that the Manhyia Palace is considering merging all supporters group namely Circles, Faithfuls, AKOPA and Kotoko ladies to single group to revive the club's fan base.
