Inuwa Yahaya Threatens to Drop Gombe United Amid Poor Performance

In a bold move amid disappointment over Gombe United’s dismal show in the ongoing 2023/24 Nigeria Premier League Football season, Governor Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya has stirred controversy by hinting at severing ties with the state-owned football club.

During a New Year Day broadcast on NTA Gombe, Governor Inuwa expressed frustration at the club’s underwhelming performances. He emphasized his administration’s prioritization of crucial sectors like agriculture and security but maintained that the state’s sports sector’s downturn should not be attributed solely to his governance.

The Governor’s stance has sparked mixed reactions, with some viewing it as a tough call to revamp the sports scene in Gombe, while others express concerns about the potential fallout for the beloved football club.

Amidst growing speculation and anxiety among Gombe United supporters, the future of the club hangs in uncertainty as stakeholders eagerly await further developments following the Governor’s stern remarks.
