… As Governor clears outstanding salaries

General Manager of Heartland FC, Promise Nwachukwu has showered encomiums on Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma following the payment of players’ salaries.

After several months of endless wait, the Imo State Government last week paid three months salaries (March, April and May) to Heartland FC players and backroom staff.
In a swift reaction,  Nwachukwu expressed delight that the effort of the Governor was already yielding result following their 2-1 victory over Enugu Rangers on Sunday while describing him as ” a jinx breaker” with an uncommon passion for the club.
“I sincerely express my gratitude to the Executive Governor of Imo State, His Exellency Senator Hope Uzodinma for paying three months salaries to the players and  overwhelming passion he has shown for the club,” an elated Nwachukwu eulogized.
Heartland FC have been in dire strait for several months after  leadership crisis in the team meant debt owed players and officials continued to accumulate with no recourse to when it would be paid, but the former junior international is optimistic that the situation would get better soon.
“I am optimistic that things would get better soon. There were problems on ground before the Governor came on board. He is taking his time to clean up the mess in order to ensure we end the campaign on a good note. You can see that the face of Heartland FC is gradually changing,” he noted, adding:” I also acknowledge the Deputy Speaker Imo State House of Assembly Honourable Chyna Amara Iwuanyanwu and Honourable Commissioner of Youth and Sports Dan Ogu for all the love and massive support they have shown the team.
“The boys are fired up and I want to assure the football loving people of Imo State that we will not let them down. I urge all Imolites to join hands in prayers for the success of the current administration and for God to grant His Exellency more wisdom as he steers the ship of ” Eastern Heartland”.”
Heartland FC are only eight points away from relegation in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), owing to poor players morale, caused by non-payment of salaries and match bonuses.
