The chief executive of Accra Great Olympics, Mr Oloboi Commodore, is convinced the calibre of personalities on the new board of the club can drive the team to success.

Last Monday, Olympics inaugurated a new 10-member board to direct the affairs of the club, with Mr Amarkai Amarteifio retaining his position as the board chairman.

The board members are Mr Kudjoe Fianoo, Chairman of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA), Alhaji Tallal Fatal, Oloboi Commodore, Nik Amarteifio, Kwame Asuah Takyi, Professor Albert Sackey, Perry Doku, Ambassador Richard Oblitey Solomon and Kwesi Austin as Secretary.

Men of experience
In an interview with the Daily Graphic, Mr Commodore said, “i have strong confidence in the board, looking at the various skills, qualifications and the in-depth knowledge in football which the board members have to make available for the good of the club to make attractive among Ghanaians clubs.’’

‘’It is the hope and aspiration of the new board to work efficiently to push Olympics to a great height so that supporters and admirers of the team would be excited about  the Wonder Club,’’ he stated.


Supporters' approval
According to him, the club’s support base received the news with a cheerful heart when the board was put together in March and that no one had issues with the members on the new board.

‘’There is no fight in the team now though supporters have not been happy anytime we don’t win games. It has been the trend with supporters around the world to express their frustrations when things don’t go well,’’ he noted.

‘’We want to avoid the sequence of losing matches and prevent the bashing from the fans. Our wins must be more than our draws and losses and it is the desire of the board to push Olympics to sail comfortably to the shore,’’ he added.   

Mr Commodore urged the club’s supporters to desist from insulting players and officials but rather use the appropriate means to channel their grievance as the doors of the board were open to all who have issues.
