Niger Tornadoes Team Manager Usman Alfa insists that the club is not missing former Coach Abdullahi Biffo, who resigned at their end of the first stanza of the league under a controversial circumstance.
In a press conference before the match-day 32 game against Ikorodu united at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abeokuta on Sunday, he posited: “We won’t be missing Abdullahi Biffo. He was in charge and we never get an away point. With Biffo, we never won a match with a three goal margin but we did that in our last home match. The man in charge now (Bala Abubakar ) was his assistants , so there is nothing to miss about his exit .
The former Giwa and Kogi united coach, who inspired Giwa FC to the premier league in 2012/13 was saddled with the task of bringing the Niger based club back to the premier league in 2014 after the sack of Godwin Uwua at the end of 2012/13 Nigeria National League .
Abdullahi Biffo , who is presently the coach of Abia Warriors led Niger Tornadoes back to the premier league in 2015 after amassing 23 points from a possible 33 with a game to play at the end of 2014/15 Nigeria National League season .
Niger Tornadoes is the only newly promoted side yet to lose at home in their temporarly home ground at the Confluence Stadium in Lokoja.
