“I can assure you that Boboye has agreed terms with the management of the club, and he is fully set to resume at the appropriate time in his new status as coach of the team”,
In his speech, the Chairman of Abia Warriors Football Club, Chief Emeka Inyama said the club was happy to grab a man they had monitored and admired for a long time because of his technical qualities and hoped he would bring his experience to bear.
Chief Inyama, who commended the State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu for his relentless support to Abia Warriors, lamented that Bosso could not meet the club’s target of picking at least a continental ticket in the two seasons he held sway, adding that the club has accepted his resignation and wished him well in his future endeavours.
The Chairman, however reminded Boboye that the ball was now in his court insisting that the club’s ambition is to go for the league title or at least pick a continental ticket at the end of the season and promised him of all the assistance he needs from the management in order to succeed.
Speaking shortly after signing the dotted lines, Boboye said he was happy to be a member of the Abia Warriors family and promised that he would consolidate on the foundation already established in order to take the club to the expected height.
While calling for all hands to be on deck, Boboye, said he had always admired the way Abia Warriors play, revealing that he decided to pitch his tent with the Umuahia based outfit despite offers coming from elsewhere, because of the professional way the club is run and promised that with God on his side he would meet the club’s aspirations at the end of the season.
Boboye replaced former national coach Isa Ladan Bosso at the club. He resigned his appointment with the Akure Gunners at the end of last season after the club finished in sixth position with 61 points from 38 matches.
