Kano Pillars FC team has been charged to sit up and face the challenges ahead with all seriousness.
The Chairman of the club Tukur Babangida gave the charge at a meeting with players of the club at Sani Abacha Stadium after their training session today.

Kano Pillars FC players returned to Kano safely this evening from Umuahia the capital city of Abia State.
According to Technical Adviser of the club Mr. Kadiri Ikhana, the players will hold a light training tomorrow at Sani Abacha Stadium ahead of Wednesday’s encounter with Nassarawa United FC.
Ikhana charged his boys to forget the defeat they suffered on Sunday in Umuahia and focus on Wednesday’s match.
We didn’t expect what happened to us in Abia but that is football, Kadiri said.
He urged the management and fans of the club to be patient and assured them that the club will not disappoint them this season.
It could be recalled that Abia Warriors FC yesterday broke Masu Gida’s unbeaten record in Umuahia township stadium by beating them 3-0.
Kano Pillars forward Musa Najare said it’s a thing of joy to me scoring the two goals that gave my club the victory against Gombe United.
“I was giving the responsibility to lead the attack line of my team, after injury ruled out Gambo Muhammed and Nazifi Yahaya is in South Africa.”
“I thank God I did not disappoint, I will continue to work hard to justify my inclusion as a player of Kano Pillars.”
