Berekum MCE Insists Nana Kwame Gave the Church Permission To Use Golden City Park

Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Berekum, Hon, Kofi Agyei has disclosed that the postponement of the Week 3 clash between Berekum Chelsea and Elmina Sharks was the doing of the Blues Chief Executive Officer, Nana Kwame Nketia.

Elmina Sharks arrived in Berekum on Monday to prepare for of their mid-week encounter against Chelsea on Wednesday but upon their arrival, they were told that the game has been postponed.

According to media reports, the Church of Pentecost will be holding their Easter crusade on the Berekum Golden City Park on Wednesday.

And during an interview with Abusua FM, the MCE revealed that he had no hand in the renting of the edifice but rather it was Nana Kwame, who gave the church the go ahead for the program on the day of the match insisting that God comes above everything else in the world.

“Please let me state it categorically clear that it was Obed Nana Kwame Nketiah  who gave the Pentecost church the go ahead to do their program.”

“Football is the greatest passion of the nation and I can never give the park to any church when I know there is going to be a football match.”

“The park was in a bad state especially the inner perimeter because of the harmattan season so we were trying to fix it when the Pentecost Elders approached us that they wanted to use it for their crusade but I rejected it times without number.”

“The coordinating council and the Engineers went and saw Nana Kwame and he gave them the go ahead as he said the work of God is more important than football.”

“It was a mutual understanding between Nana Kwame and the Pentecost church.”

“We dealt with the team managers that is Nana Kwame and Yakubu and they should have communicated that to the FA.”

“Per this experience, I have asked Nana Kwame to present all the fixtures to the assembly so that we will know when they have match or not.”
