By Kwame Asare Boadu, Kumasi

THE football public in the Ashanti Region has been thrown into a state of mourning following the death of the Regional Football Association (RFA) Chairman, Mr C.K. Yeboah.
Mr Yeboah died at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital on January 30, 2009 after a short illness.
A number of staff at the National Sports Council (NSC) in Kumasi wore black to their workplaces in remembrance of the late Yeboah.
The one-week observation was organised at his hometown, Kyemfoso near Asante Mampong last Friday.
Hundreds of people, mostly football fans, from all over the region were at the one-week observation.
Mr Yeboah has been very instrumental in the running of football in the region over the years but his uncompromising stand against mediocrity and apathy did not go down well with some people who thought he was infringing on their rights.
However, any objective observer would realise that his leadership style helped in developing football in the region.
