The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the owner of Asante Kotoko, has pledged to rebuild the Adako Jachie Complex, which serves as the club’s training facility.
The current state of the complex does not meet the standards expected of a club of Kotoko’s stature, and the King is determined to transform it into a facility that befits one of the top sides in Africa.
Chairman of the National Circles Council (NCC), Christopher Damenya, disclosed that the King had promised to visit the Adako Jachie Complex on Friday when they met him alongside former players to assess the current situation of the club. True to his word, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II toured the facility and was made aware of the challenges faced by the club.
In response, the Asantehene committed to rebuilding the Adako Jachie Complex and improving its facilities. The club’s representatives took him around the complex, sharing the plans for its renovation and seeking support for the project.
“We took Him around and exposed our challenges to Him,” Christopher Damenya stated during an interview on Akoma 87.9 FM. “He (Otumfuo) promised to rebuild the AJ project and make it more befitting, so He has taken the architectural design, very soon we will all witness the Adako Jachie project from a different perspective.”
Meanwhile, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has appointed an Interim Management Committee to oversee the affairs of Asante Kotoko while the club’s administration is restructured.
They are Kontomponiaferehene and chartered accountant Nana Apinkra Akwasi Awua, former Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah, the club’s former coach Dr Prosper Narteh Ogum and Emmanuel Dasoberi.
