Nyaho challenges Hearts fans to buy shares

Published on: 09 November 2016

A board member of Accra Hearts of Oak, Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, has challenged supporters of the club to take advantage of the ongoing floatation of shares to invest in the club.

He said instead of sitting on the fringes and instructing managers to do their (supporters) bidding, they should rather think of investing in the club because running a club required a lot of money.

Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe told the Daily Graphic yesterday that the fans were putting pressure on management to invest in players but had done little by way of putting money in the club and urged them to buy shares for the club to be financially sound to recruit good players.

“They are saying we should engage good players and top notch technical staff, but I want them to know that all these require money so the supporters should be involved by investing heavily through the acquisition of shares to help the club get money to buy the players,” he stated.

The former chairman of the club challenged the fans, particularly those who often go on radio stations to demand the dismissal of the Board chairman, Togbe Afede XIV, to start thinking about buying more shares than Togbe Afede, if they really want to get him out.

“Those who have been making noise that the club must be taken away from Togbe Afede, this is the time for them to come and buy more shares than the biggest shareholder so they can take the club away from him,” Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe said.

He challenged them to, instead of talking too much, rather consider contributing at least GH¢5, to the club each month, so as to enable them to get the needed funding to buy better players.

“If Hearts fans would contribute at least GH¢5 every month, the team would have enough money to do what they want and I challenge them to start contributing to the club and stop the unnecessary talking,” he demanded.
