The National President of the Nigeria Football Coaching Association, Nasarawa State chapter, Ladan Bosso, has constituted a five-member Interim Committee following the crises in the association.
The President stated this during a meeting with members and the Nasarawa State Football Association (FA) in Lafia.
According to Bosso, the decision was aimed at ensuring peace among the members of the association in Nasarawa State and to make sure new officials are elected within three months.
The President of the Coaching Association added that he visited Nasarawa State to bring to an end the leadership problem in the association.
He lauded the effort being made by the FA in the state so far and reminded Coaches that they are an affiliate of the football association and must always work in consultation.
Bosso directed the committee to begin the process of election of officials from the local government to the state level immediately.
He added that the interim committee must conclude the election and vacate office for the new officials on or before Feb. 24, 2024.
He, therefore, appealed to aggrieved members to put everything behind them and give peace a chance in the overall interest of the association.
On his part, the Chairman of the committee, Coach Rabo Mohammed who spoke on behalf of others expressed gratitude to the National President and members of the association for the confidence reposed on them.
He therefore assured them that the committee would provide a level playing field for all contestants and appealed for their support to succeed in the assignment.
Similarly, FA Chairman in the state, Salisu Galadima, expressed gratitude to the National President of the Coaching Association for his intervention.
He also expressed optimism that the intervention would put to rest the crises rocking the coaching association in the state.
He therefore said the FA would sponsor 15 Coaches from the state to professional training in Abuja and Lagos in fulfilment of his campaign promises.
