Kano -The management of El-Kanemi Warriors Football Club of Maiduguri has appealed to the League Management Company (LMC) to reconsider its decision of relocating the club from Maiduguri to Kano.

The club’s Chairman, Alhaji Zannah Kakaji, in Kano on Tuesday said that the LMC needed to rescind the decision “because peace has gradually returned to the state’’.

The league organisers had suspended indefinitely matches of the season 2013/2014 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) in Maiduguri due to security concern.

“I am appealing to LMC to reconsider their decision of relocating us to Kano because peace is gradually returning to the state,’’ Kakaji said.

He said even though the club considered Kano as its second home, it was still hopeful the authorities concerned would look into its request.

El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri, which finished fourth last season, will play their rescheduled NPFL week two match against Abia Warriors in Kano on Wednesday, March 26. (NAN)
