Unidentified persons are reported to have ripped-off a banner put up by Techiman City FC to welcome the GFA President, Kurt Okraku to Techiman. Sources say, the banner was violently torn off and thrown off to the ground by persons believed to the members of rival a group in the Municipality. The reason for this dastardly act is not immediately known.
President of Techiman City FC Charles Kwadwo Ntim (Micky Charles), in a telephone conversation with Skyy Power FM, has condemned the act as “very disappointing and embarrassing”.
Meanwhile Techiman City FC has officially written to petition the Police, and the Football Association on the matter.
“The management and supporters are not happy about this nasty act. Techiman city cannot put the blame at the doorsteps of Techiman Eleven wonders as alleged by some supporters since we do not have evidence to that effect but would want to say that, whoever did that will surely pay a heavy price for it and must surely bury his head in the sand”, part of a statement signed by Kobla Abotchie CEO and Jude Akoto Frimpong, Head of Communications, stated.
Below is the full statement
The attention of Techiman City Football Club has been drawn to the destruction of it’s banner made to welcome the president of the Ghana Football Association and his Entourage to Techiman, the capital of the Bono East Region.
Techiman City Football Club heard of his coming to Techiman for a funeral and therefore decided to welcome him with a big banner. The banner was displayed just at the box junction connecting the Sunyani – Nkoranza and the Kumasi -Tamale roads, exactly on the fence housing the newly constructed Techiman Hemaas palace.
The management and supporters are not happy about this nasty act. Techiman city cannot put the blame at the doorsteps of Techiman Eleven wonders as alleged by some supporters since we do not have evidence to that effect but would want to say that, whoever did that will surely pay a heavy price for it and must surely bury his head in the sand.
The matter has also been reported to the police and investigations are on going. This step has been taking because Techiman City Football Club believes in the rule of law and the justice system in Ghana.
The matter was also reported to the GFA president Kurt Okraku at a meeting held at Encorm Hotel annex by the CEO of Techiman City Football Club Kobla Abotchie with evidence of the torn banner in the presence of some management members and supporters.
Techiman city Football Club is a peace loving sporting club and would not succumb to any unlawful act. We once again condemn this unlawful, barbaric , uncivilized, immatured, uncouth and shameful act being perpetrated by Madness to the highest other.
We Techiman city Football Club management and supporters express our gratitude to the media for the support given us. Thanks.
