Hearts of Oak’s National Chapters Committee Organizer, Paa Kofi Sunsum has given the clearest indication that the supporters of the club have not planned to stage any demonstration against the management of the club but they will not hesitate to hit the streets if their demands are not met.
The Phobians failed to win the just ended Ghana Premier League finishing the season at the 3rd position with 47 points.
The team further lost the FA Cup to their bitterest rivals Asante Kotoko by 3:1 goal margin at the Tamale Sports Stadium.
Report emerging from the camp suggests senior players of the team are unwilling to renew their contract to the club’s inconsistency.
There have been several rebuttals between the management of the club and the supporters but Kofi Sunsum says they have given the board chairman of the club a letter demanding for a stakeholders meeting and there is no planned demonstration yet.
Speaking to Class Sports in an exclusive interview on Wednesday, November 22, he said: “We are not planning any demonstration. We have written a letter to our board chairman demanding for a stakeholders meeting and we are still waiting for his response but if he fails to honour our invitation we will think of going for a demonstration.
“The players are being owed, some players’ contracts have elapsed and there are no signs of renegotiations and these are the things we want to sit down with him and discuss,” he explained.
For him, the board of directors of the club are to blame for the woes of the club and not the supporters.
“The board of directors has to inform us [of] what is happening because they know what is happening. I don’t know what is happening because I am the leader of the supporters group and the supporters don’t take policy decisions. It is the board, so if there is anything going wrong the board should be answerable so we are calling the stakeholders meeting to thrash out issues,” he added.
