Governor Inuwa tasks Gombe United Management on Accountability

Published

on

Gombe State Governor, his Excellency, Inuwa Yahaya has demanded accountability in the way State owned club, Gombe United Football Club is being managed.

In a chat, with the Publisher and Chairman CEO of Northeast Times Newspaper, Alhaji Ahmed Shuaibu Gara Gombe, the governor lamented the extent he had carried Gombe United along during his first tenure and has continued to do so. Alas! “All I could get from people was that I wants Gombe United Football Club dead”.

The governor is not usually among those that hug the media for publicity on issues bothering on good governance, however hinted that his accountability records gave him victory recently at the supreme court for a second term as Gombe State helmsman.

In the chat, His Exellency also recounted the amount of money his government doles out to Gombe United monthly and queried “What had they done with the money?

“I have been releasing 12 million (Twelve million Naira) every month to the Club management for more than a year and never stopped. What have they been doing with it?

He continued, “I am aware they have been selling players to other clubs and also transferring players abroad, they only tell him they sold players, but how much, where the money is and how many players he doesn’t know or they don’t tell him”.
A seemingly embarrassed Governor Inuwa, could not understand why a privately owned club in the state DOMA United could be doing well and Gombe United owned by Government is complaining.

His Excellency also said that, “DOMA UNITED is a private Club owned by an individual not Government. Why are they doing well? Is the Chairman of DOMA UNITED spending 12m every month on Doma United?

“DOMA UNITED are from Gombe too, they are not from any other State, I can decide to help them and support them too. For an individual to show the kind of management acumen, accountability and performance of DOMA UNITED, they deserve our praise and support”.

Governor revealed so many things especially how he is being scandalized on social media, alleging that people of Gombe State and sports lovers saying he wants to destroy Gombe United, that he is not interested in helping the team.
Interestingly, the governor however regretted how unfair people have been to him and his Government.

NNL solicits for funds from cooperate organisation

The Nigeria National League, NNL, has appealed to cooperate organisations for funds to assist in the effective running of the second tier league.

NNL chairman, George Aluo noted that the unavailability of funds has hindered the progress of his administration.

“I must continue to express my appreciation to Alhaji Gusau for finding me worthy to serve as NNL chairman and a board member of the NFF,” he stated.

“My appeal is that corporate organizations should come to our aid and do what GTI is doing for the NPFL.

“We’re not saying they should give us money to put in our pockets. Let them take care of referees indemnity and once this is done, the referees will not be intimidated but rather be at their best and it will now be possible for teams to be winning more on the road as is presently being witnessed in the NPFL.”
