Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

Asante Kotoko have commiserated with the family of the late veteran football administrator Alhaji Yakubu Moro.

The owner and President of National Division One League side Berekum Arsenals kicked the bucket in the wee hours of Friday October 16, in Accra.

The revered football honcho had been unwell for sometime and gave up the fight for survival; a situation which has thrown the football fraternity into an entire state of shock.

Asante Kotoko posted via their twitter page that, ‘We are saddened by the news of painful demise of Alhaji Yakubu Moro. Alhaji until his demise was the President of Berekum Arsenal FC and an iconic figure in Ghana Football. Sir , May Allah grant you rest and everlasting peace’. 🙏#AKSC #KotokoCares

Yakubu Moro’s Arsenal enjoyed their hey days in Ghana’s top flight in the early to mid-2000’s when they even qualified for the CAF Confed Cup.

The Berekum Gunners progressed to the second round after eliminating Congolese side Diable Noirs only to be kicked out by Angolan giant Petro Atletico Luanda.

The late Yakubu Moro will be buried on Friday as per the dictates of the Islamic religion.
