Coach Godwin Koko Uwua has finally resigned his job with Niger Tornadoes of Minna after serving them with a two-months notice.
The former Super Eagles assistant coach, in a letter dated April 23, 2013 and addressed to the Chairman of Niger Tornadoes, gave three reasons for terminating his appointment as technical adviser of the team.
According to the letter, the management of Tornadoes failed to respect the terms of his contract, which include:
“Lack of contractual fulfillment in my salary/contract fees. The management agreed to join my salary and sign-on, which rose to the tune of N900,000 monthly but N700,000 only is being paid monthly from October 2012 up to the time of my writing this letter.
“Indiscriminate sack/recruitment of players without notifying the coaching crew and constant interference in the team selection.The sack of 11 regular players without the knowledge and notice of the coaching crew.
"I therefore see this as an act meant to sabotage and frustrate my ambition in the team.
“Poor welfare for both players and coaching crew which includes poor medical care for the players including me. In March 2013, I fell sick and I was asked by the management to treat myself but thank God I am okay.
"I travel in the players’ bus and sometimes, I sleep in the bus for lack of accommodation arrangement at match venues. I can no longer cope with all the pressures on me as the management are not ready to make my job easy,” he wrote.
