Asante Kotoko Chief Executive Officer [CEO], Nana Yaw Amponsah, says no game will be played in the Ghana Premier League until the tie between his outfit and AshantiGold has been fulfilled.

The Porcupine Warriors were expected to be hosted at the Len Clay Stadium in Obuasi in the matchday 29 games later today.

But on Wednesday night, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has decided to postpone the Ashanti derby due to security reasons.

However speaking on a Twitter Space with Kotoko fans, Nana Yaw Amponsah has asked that the fixture between the league leaders and AshGold be honoured as the Miners could have an impact on deciding the winners of this season’s Premier League.

“Why can’t adequate security be provided in Obuasi? Are we saying that after Sunday matches, the next [home] match of AshGold will be postponed too? Until Kotoko and AshantiGold play their game, no other match will be played and we are writing to the GFA to insist on it,” he said.

“The timing of the decision [punishing AshGold for match-fixing] is so wrong. They [GFA] have created an environment for more manipulations.

“The matches remaining for AshantiGold have a bearing on who becomes champions and gets relegated,” he concluded.

Kotoko occupy the top position in the Premier League log with 56 points after 28 matches played.
