Hearts PRO Opare Addo deny reports of Stanbic Bank financing the Pobiman project

Published on: 05 December 2018

Public Relations Officer of Accra Hearts of Oak Opare Addo, has debunked reports that the club has opened talks with Stanbic Bank to finance their Pobiman project.

The Phobian have started training at their new center for some time now making it their first permanent home in the club's 106-year history.

Hearts had for a long time held its training session on a piece of land near the Art Center in Accra, opposite the offices of the National Lotteries Authority.

The club at some point in time moved to the ATTC Park for its training sessions after their training ground in near the Arts Center was taken over by developers to convert it into a hospitality facility.

The Phobians moved to the Legon Ajax Park on the campus of the University of Ghana for its training sessions from the ATTC Park.

Despite the CEO of the bank, Alhassan Andani claiming Stanbic is in discussion with the Phobians concerning the project, Opare has refuted claims that the club is not in discussion with the bank.

"Let me state it categorically clear that Hearts of Oak are not in talks with Stanbic bank to finance Pobiman Project," he told Abusua FM.

"Yes it is true that Stanbic bank are the bankers of Hearts of oak, maybe, that is the reason why the person decided to fabricate a story like that."

He added, "We the management of Hearts of Oak have not sat with Stanbic bank to discuss anything like that. It is palpable falsehood."
