Hearts Chapters Committee holds Assembly

Listen to article

Accra, Nov. 13, GNA - Supporters of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club have been called upon to foster mutual unity so as to move the club forward to achieve more laurels.

Mr Neil Armstrong-Mortagbe, Chairman of the National Chapters Committee of the Club made the call at the opening of this year's National Chapters Delegates Assembly in Accra on Saturday. Delegates from all the Chapters across the country are attending the Assembly under the theme, "Unity in Progress". Mr Armstrong-Mortabge said unity plays a very leading role in every aspect of life and that without it no Club, association or society can stand on its own to achieve any success. He urged the authorities to do away with rancour, bickering, back-biting and other forms of disunity, which he said has eaten into the club for some time.

Mr Armstrong-Mortagbe regretted that the club, which is celebrating her 94th anniversary this years, cannot boast of any infrastructure such as a Club house or stadium as a result of disunity. He praised Liberty Professionals for being able to acquire its own Club House and a sports stadium after they joined the Premier League just a decade ago.

The NCC Chairman appealed to the fans of Hearts not to be perturbed for their inability to defend the League title and asked them to rather rally behind the club to win next year's competition. Mr Thomas Okine, Chief Executive Officer of Hearts of Oak in a speech read for him, asked the Board Members to work hand in hand with the Chapters to enable the Club achieve her avowed aims.
