The board chairman in a separate letter to the sacked coach, David Duncan, withdrew the unilateral letter earlier signed by Opoku Nti asking him (Duncan) to step aside indefinitely.
The board apologized to Coach Duncan and said Opoku Nti was ill informed about the consequence in breaching their contract.
