NPFL Update: Abia Warriors accept coach Boboye's resignation
Abia Warriors have announced they have accepted the resignation of coach Kennedy Boboye, who threw in the towel after the club’s goalless draw with visiting Akwa United last Saturday in Umuahia.
He was in charge of the Warriors for eight months.
In the resignation letter he addressed to the club’s chairman Emeka Inyama, Boboye said he had to quit as it had become apparent that he could not meet the target he set for himself at the beginning of the season and thanked the club for giving him the opportunity to serve.
“I thank the club for giving me the opportunity to serve and I wish them well in their future endeavours,”, said the former Sunshine Stars coach.
Boboye, who joined the Warriors at the beginning of this season, took the league by storm and emerged as the Manager of the Month for February following Abia Warriors explosive start which saw them become first team in the Nigerian top flight to go 10 matches unbeaten from the beginning of the season.
However, the club’s form dwindled after a number of high profile players sustained injuries while national assignments and transfers took others away.
