Nana Yaw Amponsah
The Chief Executive Officer of Kumasi Asante Kotoko Sporting Club, Nana Yaw Amponsah, has pledged GHS5,000 to the Offinso accident victims.
Mr Amponsah made the announcement on Tuesday, 22 September 2020, at the maiden press conference on his new management.
The accident, involving about 34 young footballers of Africa Vision Soccer Academy, claimed the lives of seven footballers as the minibus they were travelling on plunged into the Offinso river last Saturday.
Six of the young footballers died on the spot while one other who was in critical condition died at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi on Sunday.
Ten of the victims, who were treated at St. Patrick’s Hospital, have been discharged.
“Not long ago, Asante Kotoko found herself in the same situation and all and sundry came to our aid so it is important to lead the charge to help our brothers,” Nana Yaw Amponsah stated.
He encouraged other clubs to put together a similar package for the colts football team.
