The last has not been heard about the saga concerning former Kano Pillars coach Ibrahim A.Musa and plans to force him back on the club despite the fact that his contract has ran out after latest reports indicated the club have been ordered by the Kano State House of Assembly committee on sports to rehire the controversial coach.
“The sports committee has directed the club to re-engage coach Ibrahim A.Musa,” a source informed SCORENigeria
“It’s a simple case of politicians throwing their weight on a purely technical football issue.”
This latest development comes on the heels of the denial by the Kano State Speaker Alhassan Rurum that he is not behind efforts to force his former coach back on Pillars.
However, Rurum had also left open the door of coach Musa’s return when he insisted the chairman of sports committee was in a better position to speak on whether or not there were plans to ensure the coach returns to the darling club of Kano.
Pillars players have met with Kano Deputy Governor Nasiru Gawuna to express their disapproval with the return of the coach.
And lawyers representing former Pillars goalkeeper David Obiazo have already announced they have dragged the same coach Musa to court after he alleged he and some other players from the eastern part of the country threw away the 2018 Aiteo Cup final in favour of Enugu Rangers.
