Ace broadcast journalist Dan Kwaku Yeboah has described the ruling against Nana Yaw Amponsah in the Phar Rangers vs Ghana FA landmark case as bogus and arbitrary.
The Despite Media Group Head of Sports insists there is no law in Ghana that bars shareholders from becoming officers, members or shareholders of a different company if their earlier company becomes defunct or liquidated.
Amponsah, the sole shareholder of Division One League side Phar Rangers, was not officially charged by the Ghana FA prosecutor in the case but they ended up banning him for a period of 5 years. The verdict attracted widespread condemnation from renowned lawyer Naa Odofoley Nortey, football administrators George Afriyie and ace broadcast journalist Kwabena Yeboah all condemned the verdict.
Kwaku Yeboah, a former spokesperson for the Ghana FA during the period of the FIFA Normalisation Committee, during an interview with Asante Kotoko board member Kwadwo Boateng Gyenfi has described the ruling as bogus.
“In my opinion the ruling is bogus,” he told Boateng Gyenfi who also said he agrees with the ace broadcaster for his comments and revealed the board of the club has given their backing to the CEO to appeal against the decision.
