Nasarawa sacks 6 coaches for poor performance

From Francis Nansak

The axe of the government of Nasarawa State has fallen on six coaches under its payroll.

The State Commissioner for Sports and Youths Development, Othman Bala, confirmed this to journalists on Tuesday in Lafia.

The Commissioner stated that their sack was as a result of under performances in their field of sports and that for this reason, their two-year contractual agreement will not be renewed.

“The coaches were engaged on contract and since their contract has expired, there is no basis for retaining them.

“The six coaches that are sacked are those in the Basketball, Hockey, Football, Table Tennis, Weightlifting and Takwando.

“They are Mustapha Dogo, Charles Okusuware, Joy Anza, George Onukoko, Grace Jerry and Adamu Usman, respectively,” he stated.

According the Commissioner, the state has been accommodative since its creation, saying sacking six out of over 40 coaches who are largely non-indigenes who have not also added value in the development of Nasarawa youths did not amount to injustice.

“It is not that we don’t have indigenes who can give us better performance, there are a lot of them out there, so that is not the rationale behind their sack,” he added.
