"Kotoko will appear before the Disciplinary Committee; given it all the respect required as we seek justice and fairness in these cases,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.

"The Clubs enviable Corporate image hinges on how these cases are adjucated by the Committee and we are bent on coming out clean to enhance that image in the face of these accusations.

"Kotoko is saddened by the high unsubstantiated accusations in all of these charges and our team of lawyers is ready to interrogate the process to ensure justice and fairness.

"We are ready to show to the world that football has come of age, and football plies on corporate images, which image Kotoko has built over the years and therefore will not sit back for it to be run down by mere accusations.

"The club respects the committee and its composition and we are hopeful it will do a good job knowing that the verdict from the sitting would be a precedent for our game forever".
