According to reports, former Niger Tornadoes coach Abubakar Bala is due to take over the team this week, as Obuh said he was quitting because the results were not forthcoming..

“I resigned because the results were not forthcoming, I do not blame anyone for this. I want to return to my family now after which I will know what next to do as a coach.”
