Wikki Tourists' chairman, Alhaji Sule Chindo confirmed the development to supersport.com adding that the management of the Bauchi based Club would support Yakubu in his quest for honours.

“We wanted to replace Bosso with former Nasarawa United coach, Bala Nikyu but Yakubu has convinced us that he is capable of steering the club.

“His mandate is to get a continental ticket this coming season and we would give him all needed support,” Chindo said to supersport.com.

Speaking to Supersport.com on his elevation, Maidajin said: “Special thanks to the management of Wikki Tourists who chose me and I promise to fly high next season.”
