Players of Heartland not happy with Rochas stopping his support for them

Heartland players are not happy with the Imo State Government and have vowed that they will look for new clubs when the transfer window opens next week.

The players are owed allowances and sign-on fees since last season and the state government is not bothered about doing something for the players to get their money.

The recent N60 million that the State Government announced which they are yet to see has also spurred them in making the decision to leave.

Some of the players told Goal in anonymity that they have suffered untold hardship since the season started, even though they have made the state proud in recent times.

"There is no need wasting our time, praying and thinking that all will be well when everyday it gets worse. We cannot feed our families.

"The owners of the club also make sure they cajole us to play and win matches. We don't look forward to anything because we don't know where our next meal will come from.

"That is why we have decided that the best thing to do is to look for a club that will appreciate our efforts. Nobody is happy. Nobody wants to remain with the team.

"Already some of the players have started negotiating with other clubs and before the end of next week, they would have moved.

"We learnt the state government approved N60 million recently, but up till now nobody has told us anything about the money.

"Somebody in govenment wants a cut from the money before it is released, but would that same person come and help us receive tackles and score goals in matches?

"Inspite of what we are going through, we have done well in the first half of the season. All we need is the state govenment to know that we need motivation to work," the players said.

Heartland are placed fourth on the table with 28 points.

Zuma is set to publish debut novel, Fib and the Axe of fury by Esosa Kolawole in 2019. 

Fib and the Axe of fury is a young adult story of Fibikemi Adeosun, a determined, girl of St. Martha’s school.

Here’s the blurb: Aaron Oni has just two more months to live.

When Fibikemi lost her eyeglasses, a magical barrier protecting her from herself, she encounters something strange.

It’s only the beginning of a weird and terrifying journey and in a matter of time, someone dangerous will come for her.

Her obsession with saving Aaron pushes her to do the unimaginable and eventually, she discovers exactly why she must never take off her eyeglasses outside her home.

Brilliantly paced, with a young, exciting heroine and a twisting, imaginative story line, Fib and the Axe of fury is a strange West African mythological story.

This story sheds light on the Yoruba gods/ goddesses and more will be established in the spin off. It also deals with mental issues and how people handle it differently.

“I wanted to write a book that touched some social issues, but still have some fun. I’m glad I was able to do that. Even though some of my characters were quirky and fun to relate with, I was able to  delve into what  loss of loved one can cause, rape and the resulting effect. Even boys are not safe too.”

Esosa Kolawole first wrote a novella titled Dear Dave in 2017, but developed a strong connection with paranormal stories. Some of her short stories includes: Asákè and the goddess of death, The house of tiny people, The Ant Queen, Portal of Faili and many more.

Esosa’s writings have appeared in Fiction magazines  including the 81 words and 101 fiction.She holds a degree in Estate management. When not working, she plays adventure games on her play station.

Fib and the Axe of fury will be available in retail stores in Nigeria in 2019Esosa Kolawole author of Fib and the Axe of fury
