The Disciplinary Committee of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has slapped Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nana Yaw Amponsah with a five-year ban with immediate effect.
The means that the former GFA Presidential candidate will have to step down as the CEO of the Ghanaian giants.
Amponsah has three days to appeal the decision at the Appeals Committee of the GFA.
Amponsah, who doubles as 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 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.
In the said letter, dated June 7, 2021, the Club stated that it should be considered as defunct henceforth which prompted the Disciplinary Committee to activate the appropriate provisions in the GFA Rules & Regulations relating to withdrawals.
The Disciplinary Committee after sitting on the matter found it prudent to sanction the former football agent for five years.
“That the Shareholders and Directors of Phar Rangers FC on the records are hereby also banned from all football activities for five (5) years effective from this 2020/2021 football season by Article 13(3) of the GFA Division One League Regulations,” the ruling from the Disciplinary Committee of the GFA read on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Phar Rangers have also been slapped with a five-year ban.
