Drama as Kwara United rejects Biffo’s resignation

Published:

 

Management of Kwara United Football Club has rejected the resignation of its head coach, Abdullahi Biffo, and urged him to return back to his role at the club as soon as he recovers from surgery.

Coach Biffo had in a letter dated October 29th 2021, written to the chairman of the club, Kunbi Titiloye, informing him about his resignation from the club and noted that his last day as a head coach of Kwara United will be November 30th 2021 following accusations of insubordination from the Ilorin State Sports Commission.

“Please accept this letter of resignation from my position as Technical Adviser/Head Coach of Kwara United Football Club. My last day of employment will be November 30th, 2021”, Biffo wrote in his letter.

However, in a message by the Chairman Kwara United, the board rejected Biffo’s resignation and reminded him that he penned a three years contract which he’s spent only two years.

“The management of Kwara United Football Club has received your resignation letter, and subsequently, have rejected same because it negates the terms and conditions in the three years contract you signed with the club.

“You are therefore, expected to resume after recuperating from the successful eye surgery you had, to ensure a smooth preparation of the club for the forthcoming 2021/2022 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.

“As a professional football club, we also value working ethics, and club has provided the coaches a well organized working environment in the first and second of the three years of their reign, and believed that this will be sustained, irrespective of the circumstances”, the statement added.

The statement also added that Kwara United FC will strive to build on the successes of last season, commending the State Government for it’s unalloyed support to the club.

It’s now unclear whether the former Dakkada and Katsina United gaffer will bow to the pressure from the club and reconsider his resignation.
