    “Malikawa concluded that after completing all the necessary documentations, Musa would be unveil by His Excellency, the executive Governor of Kano state, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje before the commencement of the second stanza of the league”

    TOTAL RUBBISH!! Why not call Buhari sef.

    Anyways, Nice move Skipo. I just pray and hope you stay Humble over there.

  • AT LEAST The NPFL & PILLARS will benefit from fifa wc largesse if we get to Qatar 2022

    I wonder what the Kano Pillars dressing room will be like with Musa in there. The other players will be star struck. They have a team mate who has scored 4 world cup goals. Scored twice against Barca. Won Afcon. I’m sure Musa will be spending at least 50% of his time signing autographs and taking selfies 🙂 🙂 🙂
    A star comes home.

    In this kind of scenario Musa will be coming to training on Friday and be in the starting 11 on Saturday or Sunday. Lmao! Anyway it’s a good move to keep him in shape for assignment ahead. Especially the WorldCup qualifiers coming up.

  • My own is @28? Musa deserve better. But best of luck.

    Hopefully Musa gets an European club in the summer.Playing for pillars will improve his fitness.
    Meanwhile,this summer will be a busy one with the world cup playoffs and Musa being an important player as Rohr has shown lately for the super eagles,this would come as a good news for the gaffer and his team.

  • Nice move for him.This will improve the profile of the club and the NPFL.

    Most Ghanian and South American players at some point rejoin their home town clubs at some point before retirement.Even Messi have hinted that he want to finish his career in his boyhood club in Argentina.

    If this trend is sustained, I see improvement in our local league with the crowd coming back to the stadium.

    All the best to him but I hope there will be no preferencial treatment for him.

    If Musa can get regular playing time n stay fit, it will be almost impossible for Rohr to ignore him. Yes Musa might lack a bit of finesse in his play but there is this football essentials he possesses that most of our SE players lack; HIGHLY SPIRITED, especially when playing for the SE. He is always so charged up, taking his fight to the very peak. I see that trait in Osimene as well as a bit in Chuzzy. Just will like to see other players add that to their game both for club n country. A NEVER SAY DIE FIGHTER SPIRIT AS AGAINST THE LAID BACK ONE.

    This is what I advised all along… Playing actively for Kano Pillars is better than being on the bench for eternal in even in Real Madrid… He will stay fit and no one will criticize any invitation to team up in National Team anymore… Everyone knows his pedigree, if he had allowed himself to stay inactive till the next rollcall for qualifiers… Rohr inviting him will have amounted to gross unprofessionalism… This move is very timely and wise. I applaud Musa as this is how to lead and be example of a true professional. A European club will come calling in no time… that one sure! One love people…

    So now Kano State will demand by way of “Federal character” that Ahmed Musa must play for Nigeria or else the Federal Government should withhold funding for the Super Eagles. Watch out!

    All his mates don retire from national team. Him wan die there. Bon to rule mentality. Mikel is far better but he quit to give room for the young. Musa Must Go #musamustgo

  • @ gudson you are a disgrace to your family.
