Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, a board member of Hearts of Oak, has disclosed how he used his money to buy fuel for the club when he joined in the 1980s.
When he returned to Ghana from abroad, he claimed that Hearts of Oak already had top executives managing club business, such HP Nyameteye, Tommy Thompson, Dr. Quarnor, Ambassador Osekre, and Alhaji Tijani among others.
Speaking about his progress since joining the club, Dr. Tamakloe said that both when he was contacted by one of the club’s top officials and when he drove through the secretariat in Tudu, Accra, he was moved by the club’s situation.
“One day I drove to Tudu to get some tilapia around the Hearts of Oak secretariat and I was called by one of the officials when I asked what he was doing here, he said they were waiting for the players and I joined them to wait for the players. We waited and only 13 players showed up because officials have to send people to call these players from their various homes,” he told Prime Take.
“After waiting for hours, the driver of the bus showed up and said there was no fuel in the bus so we had to contribute and so I used my tilapia money to help get fuel for the bus which became my first investment for the club and finally they travelled to Kumasi and managed a draw against Asante Kotoko”, he added.
