More details have emerged as regards the resignation of officials from the management of Nigeria Professional Football League side, Kada City.
It was reported that at least five top clubs officials including head coach Adams Usman, his assistant coach Shola Ibrahim Adewuyi General Coordinator as well the media officer Jide Bodunde departed the club after different fallouts with the CEO of the club, Ekene Abubakar Adams.
In a chat with the now former media officer, Jide Bodunde, he confirmed the departure of coaches and other officials from the Kaduna based club.
“Three coaches actually left, myself and the coordinator. I can’t speak for them but I can speak for myself. I didn’t even know the coordinator left until recently,” he said.
Propping further to know what went wrong for such mass exodus of the officials, he said he could only speak for himself.
“I am no longer interested about the club as I have moved on. I left because of breakdown in proper communication. It was the easiest decision I have ever taken in my entire life.
“The CEO of the club is not a bad person and he gave everyone opportunities. Mine is just a personal decision. We didn’t get to understand each other,” he said.
It was also reported that the CEO allegedly struck a hundred million naira deal with the Delta State government by swapping their slot with Delta Force without taking his management along.
It was also alleged that the Delta State Government has been financing the home and away matches prosecuted by Kada City.
Speaking further on this, Bodunde denied knowledge of the deal with the Delta state government.
“I wouldn’t know. I don’t want to delve into issues but I read the report and I think the CEO will be in a better position to speak on that, or someone from Delta sports.
“But the CEO has said that he has not sold the club to anybody. I’m actually at a cross road so I can’t confirm that,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, efforts to speak with the CEO proved abortive as he didn’t answer calls made to his phone and didn’t reply text messages till he switched off his phone.
Kada City is one of the newly promoted clubs and will compete in the Nigeria National League next season, taking the slot of Delta Force.
