Karela United’s new owner has shut down reports that he will be relocating the club to the Northern Region after completing a takeover in November 2022.
Before the Ghana Premier League took a break before the commencement of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the Member of Parliament for Tamale South Constituency and Minority Leader finished his takeover of Karela United.
Although it has been rumored in the media since the claims that the club had been sold to the MP first surfaced, he assures that he won’t take the club away from the Nzema people.
“I am yet to take over as the new Karela United owner but currently we are in to support the team, we will do our best to put the club forward,” he said.
“I heard the news that I am taking the team away from Nzema land, please it is never true.”
“The team will remain there because I want to help my sister (Abena Brigidi) to run the club as I said earlier,” footballghana.com quoted Haruna Iddrisu.
Due to the passing of Senator David Brigidi, the owner of Karela United, in 2018, the company is currently having financial difficulties.
In October 2013, the former senator of Nigeria purchased the team and changed its name from Metro Stars to Karela FC.
In order to qualify Karela for the nation’s top flight after five years, he also made a large investment.
He was the owner of Shores & Savannah (Law Partners), South Field Petroleum, Adef Energy Services, Re-Routine Air Limited, Karela Oil & Gas in Ghana and Nigeria, Karela Hotels & Resort Ghana, and Karela Hotels & Resort Ghana.
