Vociferous Ghanaian politician and youth leader, Mr Edem Agbana, has been appointed as the Chief Corporate Affairs Manager of Sunyani-based Division One league club, Young Apostles Football Club.
The appointment which came as a surprise to many has been trending on social media since the club made the official announcement on their Twitter page.
Agbana is currently the Deputy National Youth Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC). He was one of the leading voices in his party’s failed attempt in the last election.
In a letter announcing the decision to appoint Agbana as the club’s Head of Corporate Affairs, GFA Vice-President and CEO of the club, Sammy Anim-Addo described him as a versatile leader whose addition to their team will be of immense importance to the young club.
Many people welcomed his appointment but some raised questions about his interest in football because they know him to be a dedicated political activist and not a football lover.
