The duo of Kogi State Football Association and Referees Association has thrown their weights behind Mallam Abdul Adama to reposition the state-owned Nigeria National League side Kogi United and Nigeria Women Premier League side Confluence Queens.
After great exploits recorded with ABS FC of Ilorin, Mallam Adama without imposition received the nod of the Kogi state governor, Captain Idris Wada to serve as the Sole Administrator over Kogi state-owned clubs in September to rescue the dwindling situation, after Kogi United recorded an awful campaign in the 2012/2013 season.
In separate massages, The Chairman of Kogi FA, Mallam Adama Yahaya hailed Governor Idris Wada on the appointment of the former ABS proprietor, describing it “the right peg in the right hole”, saying that “it high time the state owned a club in the Premier league assessing the quality of stadium facilities in the state”.
Mallam Yahaya promised that the state FA under his leadership “will provide their best of support to the Sole Administrator in quest to reposition the state-clubs”, suggesting that “a good working relationship should be built with stakeholders of the game”.
While describing the appointment of Mallam Abdul Adama as the best thing to have ever happened to kogi football, Chairman of the Kogi State wing of Nigeria Referees Association, Mr Stephen Bello, says the state-owned clubs will record the desired progress and will compete better among the best in the country.
He stated that the association “is always ready to collaborate with the managements of Kogi United and Confluence Queens on ways of promoting the game of football in the state”.
