Hearts of Oak board chairman Togbe Afede has attributed the club’s success both on and off the pitch to Vincent Sowah Odotei and Alhaji Akambi.
The club supporters have called for the sacking of the duo as board members.
The supporters believe Akambi and Vincent Sowah Odotei are the sources of problems in the club. They have accused the duo of masterminding the sacking of their beloved coach Samuel Boadu, who won five major titles for the club in 18 months.
But the club’s majority shareholder Togbe Afede has jumped to the defense of his “trusted duo” and insists the supporters should rather rally behind Odotei and Akambi because they engineered the success of the club in the 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League.
“Sometimes I am amazed by the level of commitment of these people, and trust me the successes of 2021 and 2022 on the pitch, what we are doing at Pobiman, the commercial centre, support liaison office, and the new head office building will never have been possible without the support of this two gentlemen,” he told the media on Wednesday.
Hearts of Oak have had a poor start to the season, resulting in an early exit from the CAF competition, where they had hoped to reach the group stage.
Also, they are in the bottom half of the suspended Ghana Premier League following two draws and a defeat in three games.
