Former Kwara United handler Abdullahi Biffo has paid for three Kwara coaches to acquire more knowledge at the Nigeria Institute for Sports, NIS to help their careers in coaching.
This is not the first time Biffo will be doing this, as it will be recalled that he also sponsored 3 Kwara coaches to NIS in March 2021.
Salaudeen Adeyinka (Keshi) from Offa, Olododo Muhammad and Jimoh Abdulkadri (Kado) are the 3 Kwara coaches picked by their association in the State to benefit from Biffo’s latest sporting gesture.
Interestingly, Kado who is currently the head coach of Abraysport was also sponsored to study Basic at NIS by Biffo, but this time around, the Ilorin born coach will be going for 1 year Advance coaching course which will begin in January 2023.
Keshi and Olododo on the other hand have started their Basic courses at the National Institute for Sports (NIS) at the National Stadium, Lagos.
Speaking on this gesture, Biffo urged the 3 coaches picked by their Association in Kwara to be good ambassadors of the State stressing that he will continue to do his best to help younger coaches to grow.
“I just want to urge them to come out in flying colours at the NIS and I wish them and other coaches success in their careers. I will continue to do my best for the development of football and sports in general in my state (Kwara).” Biffo explained to award winning Sports Journalist Ibitoye Shittu.
Biffo’s 3-year contract as coach of Kwara United expired at the end of last NPFL season in which the Harmony Boys got continental ticket.
He was in charge of the team for 32 games last season before he traveled to America for urgent medical treatment, and in his absence, coach Lukman Ijaiya and coach Mukaila Iyala took charge thanks to Audu Mohammed who assisted them from the innerdoors.
Coach Audu was later named as the replacement for Biffo and was in charge of Kwara United’s campaign in the 2022 CAF Confederations Cup.
Biffo also remains the Coach with the highest number of away wins in a season at Kwara United which was 4 which he got in the 2020/21 NPFL season.
The former Katsina United and Abia Warriors’ gaffer also set unbeaten home record in the NPFL while in charge of Kwara United.
Biffo who has CAF B and UEFA B is still in the United States.
