Chairman of Nasarawa United, Isaac Danladi has said that former coach of the club, Mohammed Babaganaru’s decision to quit the Solid Miners was a blessing in disguise for the club.
Danladi, while referring to the recent good run of form by his club in the ongoing NPFL season, said that the club started climbing up the log after Babaganaru left the Solid Miners in July.
“God has a way of doing things; incidentally, these are the same boys that played under Baba Ganaru are all of a sudden seeing their fortunes turning around.
“The team even went on to defeat Kano Pillars under Baba Ganaru and breaking a 12-year-old jinx of pillars not conceding defeat at their fortress in the pyramid city,” Danladi said.
Former ABS FC coach, Kabiru Dogo, who was Babaganaru’s assistant at the time of his resignation was appointed coach of the side and Nasarawa Utd have made history twice after his installment, destroying Kano Pillars’ home record of 12 years without losing an NPFL match, also defeating Sunshine Stars 3-2 in Akure which is the first game the Owena Waves will lose at home this season.
“You can see that fans’ attendance of matches during our home matches have doubled since the club’s victory in Kano,” he added.
Nasarawa United is currently occupying the seventh spot on the Glo Premier League table with 43 points from 29 matches..
