“I also wish to record here for registration purposes and for the club, its fans and other interested parties of the club that at no time did I receive an ultimatum from the club management.

“I only learned of such information from social media and other third parties and for this reason, among other reasons,” the resignation letter read in part.


Dogo wondered why the club, which says it gave him a two-game ultimatum, did not allow him to attend the first of two games in Port Harcourt against Rivers United.

A source close to the coach also confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES that the Wikki Tourists squad for the clash against Rivers United was not selected by Dogo.
