‘Gov Bala Enemies Responsible for Setback in Bauchi Football Team’

Alhaji Balarabe Yusuf ‘Douglas’, chairman of Wikki Tourists, says dirty politics by “enemies” of Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed and bad officiating are responsible for crises in the state-owned football team.

WikkiTimes had earlier reported that Abdullahi Adamu, the team’s manager resigned from his position over poor performance. But Yusuf said the club has not received Adamu’s resignation letter. The club’s board only saw it online.

“The truth of the matter is that politics, not just football politics but dirty partisan politics by some elements, has infiltrated the activities of Wikki Tourists. If you watched Wikki matches last season and this season, you would notice differences. This season you will be angry because referees cheated us in unlike last season when we didn’t even have quality players. We had good goals disallowed by referees.

“Another tactic employed by the elements was deploying some people to cause trouble during our home matches so that we can be banned from our home.

“We have discovered some of the elements behind the plans to tarnish Wikki Tourists but I will not mention them now, especially those behind the last attack. They were inside the stadium when the unfortunate incident happened.

“They were eager to attack the referee so that the situation would escalate with a view to tarnishing the image of the Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed,” Yusuf said.
