Asante Kotoko board member, Kwadwo Boateng Gyamfi, says being part of the Kotoko board is approximately ‘voluntary participation’ unlike other corporate institutions.

The board have come under criticism by a section of the supporters as well as some media personnel who believes the club’s management are not getting enough financial handout from the board to be able to execute their duties.

Mr. Gyamfi has reacted that the board incurred debt and thus it is ‘discouraging’ to hear people insult them without knowing what’s happening behind the scenes.

“Board appointment doesn’t come with money. Mostly when you go on any board you are paid sitting allowance.

“Kotoko is more or less a voluntary participation and  Otumfuo (King of the Asante Kingdom) is the owner of the club. So he assign you(board) to do the work for him.

“Therefore, you are there to serve Asante Kingdom, Kotoko, and the supporters. But there is incurred debt and the only option is to use our pocket money…So it feels very discouraging to hear insults from people.” He said in an audio aired on Silver TV on Facebook

On whether or not the board have rifts with the management, he said there is no such thing.

’“There are no issues between the board and the management. They are all speculations. Sometimes I listen to some of your panelists and some other stations and it’s amazing the kind of stories you put out. They are so calculated.

‘’If you (media) love Kotoko then I think you shouldn’t do that. We should all support the team with a good heart. That kind of speculation won’t help Kotoko in any way. In fact, we’re doing our best.’’
