‘Musa previously played for the Pride of Kano in 2009 where he ended the season as the top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League with 18 goals before moving to VVV-Venlo in the Netherlands.’
According to Malikawa, the club has agreed to the deal after due consultations with the player and the League Management Company of Nigeria (LMC) whom stood as a mediator to the deal.
Malikawa further stated that the club has received a letter from the League Management Company of Nigeria (LMC) that was signed by the Chief Operating Officer, Malam Salihu Abubakar, that Pillars will sign Musa as an Elite player of the league to the end of the season.
‘Ahmad Musa is our own and Pillars FC will continue to support him anytime and anywhere he found himself,’ Malikawa said.
Amongst the contractual agreement reached and would be documented between Musa and Pillars was that anytime Musa gets an offer elsewhere, he would be released by the club.
