Nigerian outfit Kano Pillars’ management board has been dissolved due to “infighting” by Kano State Governor, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje.

The decision by the club’s financier comes just before the FIBA Zone Three Africa Championship tips off later today in Togo’s capital, Lome.

Dr. Ganduje stated, “I am not happy with what happened in the outgoing board in which the members were fighting for their own interests instead of putting heads together to move the club forward” according to supersport.com.
Ibrahim Galadima- Kano State sports commission chairman-has been directed to draw up plans for a new board in the coming days.

The competition will have clubs from West African countries including Ivory Coast, Mali, Burkina Faso and Ghana compete from October 21 to October 30 for the chance to feature in the main championship.

Braves of Customs will represent Ghana and is set to face former player Romeo Enan in the competition as a member of Pillars.

Tema Youth-Ghana’s other representative and beaten finalist in the 2016 Accra Basketball League-will not be in Togo after pulling out due to financial reasons.
