Elechi is taking over from Kester Ojo, who guided the Delta State government-owned team from the Nigeria National League (NNL) back to the NPFL.

Warri Wolves were relegated from the elite league in 2016 but they sealed their comeback with a victory over Dynamite FC in the recent NNL play-offs.

Elechi will have to prove his critics wrong as he takes over at Warri Wolves because the last two teams he has handled, Go Round FC and Yobe Desert Stars have both gone down from the premier division to the NNL.
