Jambul said it is necessary to continued to abide by the Covid-19 laid down preventive protocols in all the Sai Masu Gida home matches so as to protect the interest of the club, Kano state government, the fans and the League Management Company of Nigeria, LMC.
The chairman then urged fellow NPFL club managements and all stakeholders to ensure that they are complying with the said Covid-19 protocols for the progress of the league.
“We have to put our heads together to ensure the league is going on smoothly particularly at the match venues’, Jambul said.
He expressed hope that football stakeholders that are being allowed to the stadium during league matches will continued to support and cooperate with the clubs as well as the League Management Company, LMC, for a better season.
‘As stakeholders, it is our collective responsibility to avoid any thing that would become an issue of discussion in our stadiums,’ the chairman explained.
He then thanked the Sai Masu Gida teeming fans, Kano and kaduna state football Associations for their support and cooperation given to the club particularly on the issue of security and Covid-19 preventive protocols right from the beginning of the season and hope they would sustain the tempo.
He also advised those that are not supposed to be at the stadium premises during league matches to continued praying for the success of their teams and appealed to the members of the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19, PTF to look at the ways and possibility of lifting the ban on spectators in the near future.
