New Edubiase are in turmoil following the resignation of club owner Yakubu Abdul Salam.
The ambitious football administrator quits his post on Tuesday due to what is believed to be board room power struggle within the club.
Edubiase have been in the news for all the wrong reasons in the past few weeks after reports of a potential sale emerged in the local media.
The owner of the club’s title sponsors, Sidalco Liquid Fertilizers is believed to be nurturing an ambition to buy the club which won the Ghana FA cup last season.
The former Member of Parliament for Korley Klottey constituency, David Lamptey, has offered tremendous financial support to the club and relishing the prospect of having a bigger say in the affairs of the Bekwai-based side.
But the club’s president has fingered his junior brother and management member Abu Salam for sowing seeds of discontent among the rank and file of the club
“ I have resigned from the club to save my life. He (Abu) is the cause of all these problems,” Salam told Accra-based Peace FM
“He comes to me and says a different thing and goes to the other person to say another thing.
“Look if I tell you what he is doing, you will be shocked and so I have decided to leave the club for him (Abu).
“He is creating all the confusion in the team and so I have quit. I cannot sack him even though the team belongs to me.
“I want to concentrate on my job. I have given the team to him. I will not come close to the team again.”
The latest squabbling could affect the club ahead of the upcoming Premier League campaign and more crucially their participation in next year’s Caf Confederations Cup.
