Probe Hearts CEO — NCC National Organiser

A leading member of the Accra Hearts of Oak supporters front has called on the board of directors of the club to probe the dealings of the current management headed by Mr Vincent Sowah Odotei.

Mr Alhassan Musah, the National Organiser of the National Chapters Committee of Accra Hearts of Oak, who spoke to the Daily Graphic, suggested that a body be constituted immediately to scrutinise all the signings so far concluded by the Hearts CEO.

Last Sunday, the seething discontent over recent developments in the club snowballed into a serious confrontation between a director of Hearts, Alhaji Fawaz Zowk and Odotei at the Ohene Djan Stadium in the aftermath of a 1-0 defeat handed them by perennial bogy side King Faisal, in a Charity Cup match.

According to Alhassan, tongues had been wagging since the club recently transfered players like Stephen Ofei, Charles Vardis and Don Bortey to Israel without a shred of explanation from those involved and said those who did the transfer should appraise everybody of the facts before the situation gets out of hand.

Alhassan bemoaned the current antagonism within the top hierarchy of the club since the appointment of Odotei and called on the board to act swiftly to save the club from further crises.

In his view the club needed a unifier at this critical moment when the camp was divided and insisted that the situation calls for an experienced CEO to stabilise the current volatile situation in the camp, which, he said, had scared high-spirited Phobians who want to contribute their bid for the club's recruitment drive.

But the current Hearts boss has denied all the charges, saying the club was in such a dire financial situation that he wondered which money had been stolen by his management.

“I have no hand in the transfers they are talking about and I would be too willing to submit myself to any probe,” he told the Daily Graphic in an interview.

“Those who are making the fraud allegations are either ignorant or being mischevous,” he charged.
