Usman Abd’Allah has joined Wikki Tourists as Technical Adviser of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side on a short-term deal, a week after being sacked by Enyimba.
Abd’Allah, who led Enyimba to their record 8th NPFL title last season before his shock departure last week, replaces Garba Ibrahim at the Bauchi-based outfit.
He has already agreed a 5-month contract worth Twelve Million Naira (N12million), and has been tasked to stabilize the club and ensure they are not relegated to the lower division.
“It’s a good deal, so I decided to accept it. Who will offer you N12m in five months? Come on! I took it,” Abd’Allah told www.busybuddiesng.com in a telephone chat.
“I am here to stabilize the team and hopefully help them remain in the NPFl and change things for next season.
”They have a good budget and I think the target is achievable.”
Wikki Tourists are currently placed 14th on the NPFL standings with 16 points from 13 matches (with a game in hand.
Abd’Allah is expected to be in charge of the team when they face struggling Adamawa United in Gombe in one of Wednesday’s Match Day 15 fixtures.
