In a bid to ensure a speedy promotion back to the elite Nigeria Premier League, NPL, the Kwara state government has approved the appointment of John Sam Obuh as the new Technical Adviser of the state darling team, Kwara United Football Club.
It would be recalled that the former technical crew of the club, headed by Coach Tunde Abdulrahman was dissolved together with the management team, after their dismal performance that saw the team relegated to the National League.
In a statement signed by the Commissioner for Sports and Youth Development, Hon. Kale Ayo, Obuh’s appointment has been approved by the state government, with the mandate to tinker the club back to the Premier League.
He described Obuh as a qualified and highly experienced coach who is capable of bringing his experience to bear on the job.
Obuh’s appointment has reunited him with Oladimeji, as they both worked together in 2008/2009 to lead the team from the National League to the Premier League.
His performance with Kwara United in 2009 earned him national U-17 team coaching opportunity. He also graduated from there to coach the U-20 national team, the Flying Eagles.
The Commissioner urged him to work hard to justify the trust reposed in him by taking Kwara United to the next level.
Hon. Kale Ayo also urged the stakeholders to work hand in hand with him so as to realize the expected goals of the club.
