BA STARS LAUD DORMAAHENE (PAGE 63, AUGUST 19, 2010)

NEWLY-PROMOTED premier division side, B.A. Stars, have congratulated the Dormaahene, Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II, on his appointment as a Justice of the High Court of Ghana.
The Sunyani-based club said the appointment of the Omanhene, who is also the Life Patron and bankroller of Champion Club Dormaa Aduana Stars FC, was an honour to the entire Brong-Ahafo Region, especially those in the football fraternity.
Osyagyefo Agyemang Badu, who was a Circuit Court Judge, was recently elevated to the status of a High Court Judge.
Speaking to the Daily Graphic in Sunyani at the weekend, the President of B.A. Stars FC, Mr Tony Bennet, said the club, was encouraged by the Dormaahene’s affinity for football.
“This has seen him providing the needed resources and other support to build Aduana Stars into one of the fearsome sides in the country today for which B.A. Stars, as a club in the Brong Ahafo Region, is proud of,”
“We at B.A. Stars are confident that his love for the game would continue to grow even as he moves into his new position as a High Court Judge,” Mr Bennet said.
He called for good health, long life and continuous wisdom for the Dormaahene as he undertakes his work as a Justice of the Superior Court.
For his part, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of B.A. Stars, Mr K. Takyi-Arhin, was confident that football development in the region would grow with the Dormaahene as an active participant in driving the game.
Mr Takyi-Arhin who once worked as the Chief Executive of Aduana Stars, said “those of us who have come very close to this Great Omanhene know that he is an achiever, and there is not doubt in my mind that he will continue to progress as a Judge.”
He appealed to him to turn his eyes to other Premier League clubs in the region; namely BA Stars and Berekum Arsenal, so that together the three clubs would drive the region’s football to the promise land.
