Governor Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar has warned the management of the Bauchi State-owned Club, Wikki Tourist Football Club, to improve the team's performance by the middle of the football season in April 2017 or be relieved of their appointments.
The warning came following the dismal performance of Wikki Tourists Football Club in Sierra Leone and Nigeria in the recent past.
The governor was quoted in a statement by his press secretary, Abubakar Al-Sadique after a meeting with the management of the Team.
Governor Abubakar said the performance of Wikki Tourists in recent past was an embarrassment to the State.
“If by the middle of this season in April I have not seen impressive performance I will not hesitate to change the management of the Team and bring those that are ready to restore the good name of the Club,"he warned.
He lamented that the State is giving the Club all the supports so that Wikki Tourists should make Bauchi proud adding that he is ready to do more for the club but will only do so if the glory of the football Club, and that of Bauchi State is restored.
