    Kano Pillars were not top of the league before Musa joined them. His presence has catapulted them to the top of the league and they don’t look like relinquishing that spot until the end of the campaign.

      Well said senior man. May you walk and never tumble. Musa is a very professional player. He is a good captain for the Super Eagles. He is a blessing to the Nigeria Professional Football League.

      Yea… Everything seems good now right? Why most folks during his idle period were not forthright with way forward for Ahmed Musa, I was the only one on this forum who advised that needs to atleast sign for an NPFL side to stay fit and project humility and professionalism. He being the humble dude he is, took the cue and no one can criticize Rohr for calling him up again because he has shown WHT he can do on the biggest stage, and is now rightly active. So you all should remember to give me some due props… I am not one to ever write off NPFL or other stronger African local league like Egypt, Tunisia or South Africa. I believe the difference between here and there is time and chance… One love!

      • U got ur props bro… Lolz, I remember u shouting real hard about Musa joining a club, even if it’s a NPFL club… Seems to be playing out well for all parties concerned, enjoy this win @jimmyball,but remember that we will still call u out on other wrong calls.. Lolz
