The former Enyimba coach could not pass the acid test of the three-match ultimatum handed to him by the management as the Coal City side drew against Remo Stars in Enugu and lost to Katsina United and neighbours Enyimba.

A source said the meeting, which was expected to be held within a week, has being pushed forward by the House Committee on Sports.

“For now Imama Amapakabo will continue his reign as Enugu Rangers head coach until the proposed meeting with the state governor hopefully before the week runs out.

“The House Committee on Sports has been interceding aimed at brokering a way forward for the reigning champions.

“The Committee had held several meetings with the general manager, Christian Chukwu, the head coach, Amapakabo, the team manager, Amobi Ezeaku and the players.

“The meeting threw up issues relating to poor funding as well as players’ disenchantment over the unfulfilled promises made after emerging as champions.

“Of course, it’s common knowledge that the head coach was given a three-match ultimatum which ended with the derby loss at Enyimba.”

“The previous two matches ended with a loss to Katsina United and a home draw to Remo Stars in Enugu.
