The National Chapters Committee (NCC) of Hearts of Oak Sporting Club has called on the hierarchy of the club to as a matter of urgency appoint a new Chief Executive Officer of the club and the first team coach.
This they say must be done in consultation with all stakeholders of the club to energise the support base of the Club.
“Our CEO Frederick Nana Kweku Moore has left his post as of now although his contract with the club would expire in March and we cannot wait until March for the appointment of a new CEO and allow for things to get rotten at the club before the new person comes in,” the NCC chairman Elvis Herman Hesse said.
Speaking at a news conference at the club secretariat yesterday, the red-eyed NCC chairman said aside the appointment of the CEO, they are demanding for a local coach to take charge of the first team.
“We do not want a foreign coach to handle the team, the appointment of the coach should only be done in consultation with all stakeholders of the Club to energize the support base of the Club,” he said, adding that the board has done it on their own in the last 11 years and the results have been next to nothing.”
He also demanded the immediate reconstitution of the club’s Board of Directors to make accommodation for stakeholders and minority shareholders, and to hold the long overdue Annual General meeting of the club which according to him was last held over three years ago.
The visibly angry NCC chairman who represents the supporters on the board said, the supporters are not ready to compromise on their demands at all and warned the hierarchy of the club that If they fail to adhere to their demands the repercussion would be dire for the club.
“We are going to make the running of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club very uncomfortable if they underestimate our demands, we are ready to die for our dear club today and to die for Hearts of Oak forever!”
