Togbe Afede XIV says he is ready to leave Hearts Oak as Board Chairman once anyone is able to buy him out.

The renowned Chief of the Asogli State in the Volta Regions has come under a barrage of attacks from some fans of the Phobians who want his board ousted.

The disgruntled fans claim the current board led by Togbe Afede have failed to live up to their promise to improve the club since their takeover five years ago.

Togbe Afede XIV became the board chairman of Hearts after purchasing majority of the club’s shared which were floated in 2010.

The club’s performance on the field of play has however deteriorated to the extent the side escaped relegation by the skin of the teeth last season.

This has led to a growing feeling amongst the fans to see the back of the current leadership in the hope that things will get better once they are gone.

And Togbe Afede in his response to the fans says he is prepared to walk away from the club but only if any individual is able to buy him out in a move which will be worth millions of dollars.

“Shares were floated and I bought majority of it, that put me in the position I am in now as the Board Chairman,” he said at the club’s Annual General Meeting on Wednesday.

“If anybody thinks he or she can do better than what this Board is doing, then they should come and buy my own shares in Hearts of Oak and I will leave in peace.”

A section of the Hearts of Oak fans led by Aziz Futa have waged a campaign to raise the needed funds to buy out Togbe Afede XIV.

This campaign has however been ineffective with the fans unwilling to dish out their monies especially in the club’s current of poor performance.
