NEWS IN: SSNIT Sues Hearts Of Oak, Over Non-Payment Of Contributions

Accra Hearts of Oak, the reigning Ghana Premier League winners, are reportedly being sued by the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) for failing to pay SSNIT contributions for players and employees.

According to Asempa FM, the Phobians have been served with a writ of summons after a former employee complained to SSNIT about their management’s inability to pay his contribution.
The news adds to Hearts of Oak’s difficulties, who have become a laughingstock following their CAF Champions League thrashing by Saoura.

On Sunday, December 5, 2021, Hearts of Oak were thrashed 4-0 by Algerian team JS Saroua, putting an end to their CAF Confederations Cup campaign.

Hearts of Oak had previously been thrashed 6-0 by Wydad Athletic Club in the CAF Champions League.

Hearts’ trip to Algeria has sparked debate as the club spent more time traveling than many believe it should have.

The individual who made Hearts’ travel arrangements, according to a member of the Ghana Football Association’s Executive Council, should be sued for bad preparation.

“Whoever planned the tour for Hearts of Oak did Ghana a disservice. He has caused the country to lose money. They did the same thing in the other game as well. Dr. Randy Abbey, the delegation’s leader, warned them, but they refused to listen, so they boarded a different flight. Randy Abbey was unable to accompany them to Dubai. They didn’t learn anything from their Morocco experience.

“Through Algeria, you can fly to Burkina Faso. It takes roughly six hours to fly from Ouagadougou to Algeria with Air Algiers. They could have saved seven hours by doing so. They were given money by the President since they were representing Ghana and had gone to shame the country. They’re now putting the coach under duress.”
