Wikki Tourists FC is currently lying bottom of the table of the group B of the abridged league having garnered one point from 4 matches played so far in the league.

Meanwhile, the embattled TA of the Club, Kabiru Dogo has come out to say that the current run of poor form by Wikki Tourists was not a technical related issue admitting however that all was not well within his team stressing he was never the problem.

Dogo was reacting to the circular going round the social media space that he has been handed a two match must win ultimatum to turn around the fortune of the club as they currently sit last on the Group B of the Npfl23 with just a single point from as many as 12.

According to him, “I am not aware of any ultimatum as I am talking to you, I am never the problem at Wikki Tourists. The team’s poor form isn’t a technical related issue”.

The Ex Lobi and Sunshine Stars gaffer is however displeased to be reading about the ultimatum online saying that, “The letter should have been sent to me personally but that was never the case, I only knew about this development from friends and family members who were calling me to confirm about the authenticity of the release”.

“Hopefully the team will bounce back to reclaim their place amongst the top teams in the group, Coach Dogo concluded”.
