The Chairman of Wikki Tourists of Bauchi Isa Matori has revealed that coach Abdul Maikaba has agreed in principle to join Akwa United, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Maikaba who guided Wikki Tourists to a third place finish in the Nigeria Professional Football League last season officially resigned as coach of the Bauchi outfit and has teamed up with Akwa United.
“We were very much aware of his (Maikaba’s) intention to change environment immediately after the conclusion of the league,” Matori revealed via a press statement.
“He did not make it official then because he was not sure if the agreement with his new employers would be sealed.
“Now that he has concluded agreement with Akwa United, he has officially submitted his letter of resignation and the management gladly accepted and wish him well.
“We equally thank him and wish him the best in his coaching career and his new assignment with our sister club Akwa United.”
