Kogi State Government has appointed Mallam Abdul Adama as the new administrator for Kogi state-owned clubs. The appointment of Mr Abdul to oversee the affairs of both clubs was endorsed following the dissolution of the state-owned clubs’ managements.
The state-owned clubs sponsored by the Kogi state government are Kogi United Football club and Confluence Queens FC of Lokoja.
According to a statement released by Jacob Edi, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Strategy, Mallam Abdul Adama, currently a Special Adviser on Public Private Partnership (PPP) to the kogi state government, takes immediate effect.
The statement explains that the dissolution became necessary in order to inject life into the two teams for better performance.
The Kogi state governor further directed the state Ministry of Sports to take proper inventory of the two clubs and hand over to the new Sole Administrator immediately.
He charged the new helmsman to evolve a better strategic approach to turn around the fortunes of the two teams by institutionalizing a sustainable structure that will make the two teams the pride of the state in sports and youth development.
The Governor Wada reiterated his determination to uplift sports in the state and urged the people of the state to continue to support the two clubs.
Until appointment, Mallam Abdul Adama was the pioneer chairman of Bukola babes FC (now ABS FC), a team he propelled from Amateur to Premiership stage.
