“The GARCC wish to condemn the unhealthy treatment meted out to our regional chairman Nana Kwame Dankwah by one Seidu. The assault on our chairman was unfortunate and should be condemned.
“We the executives of GARCC and the entire membership of the council wish to inform Dr Kwame Kyei, the executive chairman of Kotoko, Management of Kotoko and Mr. Kwaku Amponsah, chairman of the National Circles Council (NCC) that the GARCC will not partake in any of the activities of our dear team until the security of our chairman and members are guaranteed.
