Aspiring National Chapters Committee (NCC) chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak, Lawrence Ofosu-Adjare, has praised Accra Hearts of Oak for their sterling performance against Kotoko at the Accra Sports Stadium last Sunday.

Kotoko defeated Hearts 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in the semi-finals of the Normalisation Committee (NC) Tier 1 Special Competition to set up a final against Karela FC.

Mr Ofosu-Adjare, who watched the match from the stands, noted that the Phobians put up a good show and urged the players to maintain their performance in the new season.

“It was unfortunate they lost, but the programme for the team is on course and they must hold on to this performance before the league begins, he told Daily Graphic in an interview in Accra yesterday.”

Mr Adjare, a 50-year-old procurement consultant, has staked his claim to become the chairman of the NCC of Accra Hearts of Oak Sporting Club.

He told Daily Graphic via telephone that instituting a national chapters trust would be his major focus, if elected.

“The trust will be a legal body registered with the Registrar’s General Department with an appointed board of trustees and will serve as a platform to mobilise supporters and resources for the club.”

According to Mr Ofosu-Adjare, the trust would be used to mobilise funds from the supporters to purchase substantial shares in

Hearts in order to give them a strong stake in the affairs of the club, as well as play a role in the club’s direction.

Mr Ofosu-Adjare is running on the slogan, “From Stakeholder to shareholder: Agenda 20-20-30.”
