The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje yesterday sacked the Board of Kano Pillars Football Club, describing it as a terrible disappointment.

Ganduje, who gave the directive when he received players of Kano Pillars basketball team at his office also directed the Chairman of the state Sports Commission to draft a proposal for a new proactive board that would begin work immediately with the aim of restoring the glory of the club.

“I made sure they got all they wanted and I even went to the extent of investing my personal resources in the club to ensure that they succeeded. Now that I am the governor, the most shameful thing is that despite putting somebody whom I know to head the board, regardless of all the support from the state government, the team is in disarray and has failed horribly,” Ganduje said as he recalled his role to the club as deputy governor.

“I advised them on the strategy to adopt to remain on top of the league and I told them we were ready to follow their plans. Unfortunately, the issue of money became more important to them than that of performance.

“They pursued personal and monetary interests and could not maintain their position”.

Governor Ganduje, however, assured that the club would soon be resuscitated as the government is determined to get a new board, a competent coach as well as find good players, at whatever cost, to forge ahead.

Turning to Kano Pillars Basketball Club, the governor, who recalled his exploits as a first five player during his secondary school days, promised to support the team to retain its position as the best team in West Africa, as they prepare for the sub-regional basketball championship coming up in the next few days.

The chairman of the state Sports Commission, Ibrahim Galadima assured that the players would use the power of sports to project the image of Kano and the state government.

“We are now number one in basketball, number one in taekwondo and number three in handball. Sooner than later, we shall dominate all sports in appreciation of your remarkable interest in sports development”, he assured the governor.
