Frederick Moore, Managing Director of Hearts of Oak has blamed the novel coronavirus as the reason behind the delay in start of the Pobiman project.
The Accra-based heavyweights signed an agreement with Turkish firm Prefabex Modular Building Solutions to take charge over the construction of the Pobiman Complex Project last year.
But according to the club’s Chief Executive Officer, Frederick Moore, the start of the project has been hampered by the global pandemic.
“The Pobiman project is one of the big strategic move that the chairman and the board have initiated. It’s probably long overdue but I can assure you, if it had not been Covid-19, we would have seen workers at the place” he told Kumasi FM.
“At this moment of the lockdown. It is difficult to say whether the lockdown will be extended or reduced. Once it is over, we will make other announcements about where we are, what we are doing and when we will complete the project. It is something on the board’s agenda.
“As I’m talking to you,everything is in place for us to get the project going. The project will start and the project will finish in the shortest possible time” he ended.
The Pobiman Ultra Modern Training Complex will be housed with Staff Residence, Senior Housing Unit, GYM, Training Centers (Pitches), Laundry, Swimming Pool, Lockers, Toilet Facilities, and Kitchen.
