“It feels so good to be here where you’re well appreciated. The reception from the management, players and fans are overwhelming.

” I want to sincerely thank the club’s chairman, Alhaji Sirajo Umar Baba for giving me the opportunity to serve this great club and together, we can make history with the club.
