Leadership crisis rocks Bauchi FA Board, calling for removal of Paschal as Chairman


Leadership crisis has rocked the Bauchi state Football Association (FA), when Board Members call for the removal of the Chairman Mr Patrick Paschal.



The Four Board members led by Usman Abass Shehu made the call at a News conference at NUJ Press Center, saying we are passing a vote of no confidence on Patrick Paschal who is the Chairman.


The Board members accuse Mr Patrick Paschal of “high headedness, exclusion and breaching of many provisions of the Statute of the Association”.


They accused him of running the Association as his personal property as he has refused to call for a general Congress since they were elected in June 2019.


They also accused him of not carrying other members along in the running of the affairs of the association.


The cited examples include a few competitions he single handedly organized claiming that it was done by the FA after he had initially informed them that it was sponsored by Prof Suleiman Bogoro and later an unnamed Naval Officer.


The four members therefore announced his removal as Chairman replacing him with the Vice Chairman, Adamu Umar Madachi as Acting Chairman.


The Chairman Bauchi FA Mr Paschal who was a super eagle player ,while reacting dismissed his purported removal as a joke and the figment of the imagination of the four board members.


According to him, “They said that they removed me, I am presently in the office working. Those four board members have been removed during a Congress we had on (Wednesday). The Congress is above any person.” Mr Paschal.


He vows that nobody can remove him as the Chairman of the Association without following the due process laid down in the Statutes of the Association.
