SPORTS CONCERN CITIZENS: AN OPEN LETTER TO His Excellency, Executive Governor, katsina state, Mallam Dikko Umar Radda PhD.


Y.E sir,


We are writing to express our sincere appreciation for the tremendous improvement and success, you have been recorded within a shortest time of your administration. Especially in security situation, economic and infrastructure development. You deserve recommendations sir,

As a good concerned citizens.
We're writing to you to express our deeply concern with regards to the state football team. As you are aware, the team has been a great source of pride for our state and has brought, happiness, joy in social activities to many citizens.

However, it has come to our attention that the management of the team, including some senior government officials, has been involved in embezzling public funds. ( Contain in auditor general and head of civil service report) This is an unacceptable state of affairs and something that demands action.

We urge you to take swift and decisive action in this matter. It is vital that we protect the integrity of our government and ensure that public funds are used for their intended purpose.

Furthermore, We believe that you should implement the committee report on the matter. The report clearly implicates the chairman of the club in the scandal, and allowing him to continue in his position would be a huge mistake. Moreover, he has an outstanding corruption case before they state Auditor general office and forward to chief judge  since the last government, a situation that further raises questions about his suitability for the role. 

Allowing such person to hold such an important position send the wrong message about your administration's commitment to fighting corruption and promoting ethical conduct. it also undermine the trust of citizens in the integrity of the government. 

As you are well aware, the state football team serve as an important representation of our community and is an essential source of pride and inspiration for our youth. It is therefore crucial that the team team is run with the utmost professionalism integrity, and accountability.
For that currently the team is in the crises where forced the chief coach, (Technical adviser) chief currator and some important staff resign from their jobs.
It is crucial that the team be reorganize and refocuse to ensure that it serve the interest of the public by providing top-notch sporting activities that foster the necessary moral values required of youth people. A thorough review and restructuring ot the team management and structure will help to restore the confidence in the public and prevent such crises from occuring again in the future.

Finally sir, we wanted to take a moment to provide you with some advice. We have noticed that some of your friends have been engaging in behavior that is harmful to your reputation, sir you have to worked hard to build a positive reputation as a leader who cares about their community. And would be a shame for this reputation to be tarnished by the others.
Your Excellency sir, by taking this action now you can demonstrate to the people you serve that, you're committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity and honestly. 

We sincerely hope that you take our concerns seriously and that you take appropriate steps to address the situation. We, as the citizens of this state, deserve nothing less than transparency and accountability from our leaders.

Thank you for your attention and consideration in this matter.
