Despite publicly announcing the club's support for George Afriyie in the presidential race, its been claimed that the under-fire CEO has privately endorsed the candidature of an unnamed aspirants who does not have the backing of the Ghanaian giants.
The gravity of the allegation appears severe and will require Mr Amoako to act swiftly under the prevailing circumstances.
