Portia Obeng Asare, wife of the late Asante Kotoko equipment manager, Thomas Obeng Asare has pleaded with Otomfuo Osei Tutu II to come to her aid and enroll her kids on his educational fund.
Portia Obeng Asare, Asante Kotoko and the entire football fraternity lost Thomas Obeng Asare in a gory accident on the Nkawkaw road three years ago.
The Asante Kotoko bus rammed into a stationery Kia Rhino truck. Thomas Kofi Obeng Asare passed way instantly, while others, including players, team officials and journalists, sustained various degrees of injuries.
Three years on since the unfortunate incident and the wife of the late Thomas Obeng has revealed she has been neglected by the club and even the family of her deceased husband.
“Our living after the demise of my husband has not been easy, it has been by the grace of God and the benevolence of some people,” she told Kumasi FM.
“I have been neglected by Asante Kotoko and my in-laws who believe I have squandered the little I was given after the funeral.”
“The only person who has been of help to me is Mr Osei Asibbey, he has been in constant touch with me and has supported me till now. He has taken it upon himself to cater for the kids till they complete JHS.
Portia Asare passionately pleaded with the life patron of Asante Kotoko Otomfuo Osei Tutu II to come to her aid.
“I would like to plead with the new board to help further the education of the kids to tertiary. The eldest of them has completed JHS but is unable to further his education because of money, the second born will complete JHS this year.
“I’m humbly appealing to Otumfour to at least enroll my son on his educational fund to cater for his tertiary education,” she added.
Portia Obeng Asare becomes the latest person to add her voice to growing list of the accident victims who have complained of neglect.
