Kwame Baah-Nuakoh resigns as Kotoko's International Relations Manager

Published on: 28 July 2013
Kwame Baah-Nuakoh has quit as Kotoko International Relations Manager.

Kwame Baah-Nuakoh has stepped down as International Relations Manager of Asante Kotoko, can confirm.

He follows his boss Dr. KK Sarpong who withdrew his services as the club's Executive Chairman last week.

Baah-Nuakoh has been in the news after a war of words with Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi in the media.

Nyantakyi accused Kotoko of entering into agreements with Congolese Club TP Mazambe and Petro Atletico of Angola, which contravenes FIFA’s regulations and procedures by under declaring transfer fees of Daniel Nii Adjei and Ben Acheampong.

But Baah-Nuakoh rubbished that and said Nyantakyi was peddling falsehood aimed at denting the reputation of his boss Dr Sarpong.

The lecturer at the Economics Department of the University of Ghana has been a follower of the club since birth.

His first official work for the club was when he served as the communications director in the Silvester Owusu led administration that was hit with several problems.

Baah-Nuakoh worked for many years as a sports broadcast journalist.

    Baba,I don't think there is any wise person in your entire lineage. If U ever had a respectable chief in your entire region, he wud have requested you to be sacrificed for your entire tribe. Bash Nuako, a sickler as he is could utter such stupidity to us after what kotoko has made him. He can go to hell.

    Baba **** you and your entire poverty infested tribe ok. What does this got to do with Ashantis? Its people like you that make Ghana standstill. I didn't have to respond to you but I can't just stand it. You wish you were born an Ashanti. The disregard to respect, the hatred, and the foolish sense of judgement among some of you are the cause of your woes. That's why your people are all over the place begging, doing minial labour jobs. All over Ghana wherever you go Zongo's have sprung everywhere. Compare the number of Akans/Ashantis at your place and compare the number of your people at Kumasi and other Akan regions and you will learn to respect the hand the fed your sorry ass. Foolish animal like you. Count the number of your fellow tribesmen in prison for armed robbery and other criminal offences. I didn't come here to insult but you pissed me off big time. Trust me I have a lot of northern friends but for you to demean my tribe the way you did; I can't sit down for you to continue your non-sense. As am talking to you right now am employing (5) of your fellow tribesmen at my farming business at Ejura in Ashanti. Even if Asantehene sold our ancestral ornaments like you said, do you as Baba have any stake in that ornaments? Leave us to work on our internal wranglings and tell your people at the North to stop fighting and live in peace, that will bring some degree of prosperity and it will roll back the level of abject poverty that has bedeviled you since time immemorial. Find a better way to stop kowtowing to the rest of Ghana. Next time don't provoke people like me. My sincere apologies to anyone that also finds my comments offensive, I know it is but people have to put themselves in my shoes. I have to defend Otumfuo, Kotoko, myself and my tribe. I'm sorry though but I spoke the truth. Folks, am sorry this message is directed solely at this guy Baba and anyone that harbours that kind of hatred among my Ashanti/Akan tribe.

    But how can you say Dr. was or is an opportunist? I wouldn't allow that to come into the picture at all. This man is serving on the boards of many bigger organisations. How much is Kotoko worth? How much does the owner of the club himself put in the club? I think if Dr. had been allowed, he would have steered Kotoko to better heights than they are now.

    Listening to Joy FM sports yesterday, one caller said it all: the reason why there is always a problem with Kotoko. Its something we all fear to see. The problem is the Otumfuo. Until the shareholding or ownership structure is reviewed, these problems will always persist. In my view Dr. Sarpong was doing great. But questioning of his credibility by the Otumfuo and fans is what seemed to has caused all these. For instance, how does he question player sale when he Otumfuo, supposed to be the wisest person knows very well that he as the owner is not doing much in terms of remuneration. Soccer has changed from the days of old. To succeed, things must change.

    Truth is this, this Baba guy might not even be a Northerner. He might be using the name Baba to spew out this Nonsense to bring the wrath of Ashanti's on Northerners. for all I know, Northerners have played for Kotoko since time immemorial and Ashanti's get along fine with Northerners.
