Board ‘sacks’ ex-Super Eagles player, Patrick Pascal, as FA Chairman
Four board members of the Bauchi State Football Association (BFA) have passed a vote of no confidence on the Chairman, Patrick Pascal, a former Nigerian international footballer.
Led by Usman Shehu, they announced his replacement with the Vice Chairman, Adamu Umar Madachi as Acting Chairman.
Briefing Journalists at the NUJ Press Center on Thursday, the
four aggrieved Board members accused Pascal of “high headedness, exclusion and breaching of many provisions of the Statute of the Association”.

They alleged he ran the Association as his personal property refusing to call for Congress since they were elected in June 2019.
They also accused him of not carrying other members along in the running of the affairs of the Association citing examples with a few competitions he singlehandedly organized claiming that it was done by the FA after he had initially informed them that it was sponsored by Prof Suleiman Bogoro and later an unnamed Naval Officer.
Reacting to his removal, Pascal dismissed it as a joke and the figment of the imagination of the four board members.
“They said that they removed me, I am presently in the office working. Those four board members have been removed during a Congress we had yesterday (Wednesday February 8). The Congress is above any person.”
He boasted that nobody can remove him as the Chairman of the Association without following the due process laid down in the Statutes of the Association.
The former Super Eagles player also dismissed all the allegations against him describing them as baseless and unfounded stressing that they cannot be substantiated.
