Coach Kabiru Dogo has resigned as technical advisor to Nigeria Premier Football League club Wikki Tourists.
PREMIUM TIMES gathered authoritatively that Dogo submitted his resignation letter to the management of the club in Bauchi on Tuesday evening.
In the letter seen by PREMIUM TIMES, Dogo highlighted his grievances and why he took the difficult but necessary decision to leave his position with Wikki Tourists.
“I also want to state here for the record and for the sake of the club, its fans and other stakeholders in the club that the club management did not give me any ultimatum.
“I only learned of this information from social media and other third parties, and for that reason, among others,” the resignation letter read in part.
Dogo questioned why the club, which he claims has given him an ultimatum for two games, did not plan to attend the first of the two games against Rivers United in Port Harcourt.
A source close to the coach also confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that the Wikki Tourists squad for the clash against Rivers United was not selected by Dogo.
“The players have always imposed themselves. He also had no input in the selection of Port Harcourt players for the match against Rivers United,” the source stated.
Dogo, who was appointed in August 2022, helped Wikki to a 10th-placed finish after the club were initially relegated last season.
While demanding the payment of all unpaid royalties and that of his assistant and driver, Dogo expressed gratitude to Bauchi Governor, Senator Bala Mohammed, Emir of Bauchi, Chief Imam of Bauchi as well as the management, staff and fans of Wikki. the tourists
Wikki Turists are last in Group B of the NPFL 2023 with just one point from the current 12 after playing four league games so far. But the outgoing manager says the poor form is not his fault.
“The bad situation of the team is not a technical problem”. Dogo said in an earlier report.
PREMIUM TIMES findings show that motivation is at an all-time low in Wikki, with the team’s tortuous journey and much-needed funding not arriving as expected.
Meanwhile, there are indications that Dogo could be signed in the coming days, with two NPFL clubs reportedly monitoring his situation at Wikki; Looking to capitalize on any development that leads him to leave the Bauchi-based club.
