The Director-General of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), Professor Amin Alhasan, has revealed his love and respect for the oldest existing and the most successful football club in Ghana, Accra Hearts of Oak during a groundbreaking contract signing session between the Premier football club and the National Broadcaster on Thursday (April 30), at the Board room of the Corporation.
According to the DG, the original football club that he supports is not doing good in recent times hence his choice for the Phobians.
“It is very clear that in the area of sports we have a legend in Accra Hearts of Oak and in the area of Media we have the legendary legends GBC, teaming up to work together. It’s great, I am very happy to see this partnership, I believe that in this relationship both parties will stand to benefit. I have a lot of respect for Hearts for its resilience but I will fall short of declaring the club I love because they are not doing well in recent times maybe it’s time for me to develop as a fun of Accra Hearts of Oak”.
In attendance for the signing were DG of GBC Professor Amin Alhassan, Deputy-Director General of GBC, Mr. Yamson, Director of TV, Mr. Ebenezer Ampabin, Channel Manager of GTV Sports+ Mr. George Lomotey and Ag Director of Radio, Mr. Yaw Agyepong represented the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation and for Hearts of Oak the CEO of the club Frederick Moore, PRO Opare Addo and Commercial Manager Charles Kwarteng.
Chief Executive Officer of Hearts of Oak, Fredrick Moore, expressed satisfaction for the relationship.
“For me, it’s simple, Accra Hearts of Oak is the premier and biggest club in Ghana and Gtv in my view is the premier TV station in Ghana so if you are looking for a partnership you don’t go the bottom the race is not top to bottom it’s from bottom to the top simple,” he said.
The partnership is expected to give Accra Hearts of Oak supporters the opportunity to see the exclusive activities by their team and also offer a bigger platform for players to be seen across the world.
