Kwara United have rejected head coach Abdullahi Biffo’s resignation, urging him to return to his position after recuperating from eye surgery.
Biffo submitted his resignation letter this week and stated that November 30 will be his last day of appointment.
The gaffer was queried him for not attending the budget defence of the club by the Kwara State Sports Commission.
Biffo said he received a letter of query from the Kwara State Sports Commission, claiming that the act breached the terms of his contract, as he was not directly employed by the commission.
“I received a letter of query from the Kwara State Sports Commission, and as a professional football coach, I value working ethics and well organised working environment.
“I am no longer comfortable working for the club any more,” he said in the letter.
The club’s media officer Bashir Jimoh in a statement said the board had rejected the Head Coach’s resignation, reminding Biffo that he signed a three-year contract which needs to be completed.
“The management of Kwara United Football Club has received your resignation letter, and subsequently 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.
“This is 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 organised working environment in the first and second of the three years of their reign.
“We believed that this will be sustained, irrespective of the circumstances,” Bashir said in the statement.
