Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has returned to Kano Pillars FC for the remainder of the 2020/21 Nigeria Professional Football League season (NPFL).
Recall that Musa’s successful football career started at the Kano Pillars in 2009 where he ended the season as the top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League with 18 goals before moving to VVV-Venlo in the Netherlands.
In a statement from the office of the chairman of the club, Alhaji Surajo Shuaibu Jambul, signed by the media officer, Rilwanu Idris Malikawa on Tuesday, the club had revealed that the Sai Masu Gida have agreed to sign Musa until the end of the 2020/21 football season.
According to the statement, the club had agreed to the deal after due consultations with the player and the League Management Company of Nigeria (LMC) which served as a mediator to the deal.
The statement further stated that the club had received a letter from the LMC, signed by the Chief Operating Officer, Malam Salihu Abubakar, that Kano Pillars would sign Ahmed Musa as an elite player of the league to the end of the season.
The statement said the club had expressed happiness to welcome back one of their own and had wished him God’s guidance.
“Ahmad Musa is our own and Pillars FC will continue to support him anytime and anywhere he found himself,” the statement reads in part.
The statement concluded that after completing all the necessary documentation, Ahmed Musa would be unveiled by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of the state before the commencement of the second stanza of the league.
The four-time Nigeria Professional Football League Champions are currently leading the log alongside Kwara United with 36 points each from 19 matches.
