The commencement of Hearts of Oak’s Pobiman Project is set to be delayed due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation in Ghana, Modernghana Sports can report.
The club cut sod to pave way for the start of the project in November of 2019 when they marked their 108th anniversary.
Because of the Coronavirus which has forced a partial lockdown of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly, Hearts of Oak’s Managing Director Frederick Moore has noted that works on the project will have to delay.
In an interview with Kumasi FM, the football administrator said, “The Pobiman project is one of the big strategic moves that the chairman and the board have initiated. It’s probably long overdue but I can assure you, if it had not been covid-19, we would have seen workers at the place”.
“At this moment of the lockdown, it is difficult to say whether the lockdown will be extended or reduced. Once it is over, we will make other announcements about where we are, what we are doing and when we will complete the project. It is something on the board’s agenda”, Mr. Moore added.
He further stressed that everything is in place and the project will be started and completed very soon.
“As I’m talking to you everything is in place for us to get the project going. The project will start and the project will finish in the shortest possible time”, the MD for the Phobians said.
The project will be done by Turkish firm Prefabex Yapi Teknolojileri San Ve Tic Ltd. (STL) and will have facilities such as a staff residence, senior housing unit, gym, training centers (pitches), laundry, swimming pool, lockers, toilet facilities, kitchen, and dining hall.
