Abia Warriors head coach, Okey Emordi, on Monday formally resigned his appointment with the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side.

The resignation came less than 24-hour after the Umuahia Warriors were beaten 0-1 by El Kanemi Warriors in Sunday’s top-flight matchday 9 clash at the Umuahia Township Stadium.

Emordi said he cannot continue to stomach the series of poor results coming on the way of the top-flights in the on-going league.

“I have thrown in the towel as head coach of Abia Warriors because of very poor performance of the club in the on-going top-flight.

“I cannot continue to endure the pain of seeing the side produce poor results.

“We had a draw against Sunshine Stars on home ground later went to Lafia to lose heavily 1-3 to Nasarawa United and just yesterday (Sunday) we lost 0-1 to El Kanemi Warriors.

“I cannot imagine myself losing a game on home ground I think things have not augured well with me at all at Abia Warriors.

“Ordinarily, I would have waited to see whether things will improve in our next match at Akwa United but who says the result will not be worst which may prompt the management to react.

“I believe prevention is better than cure I have given the management my letter of resignation and it has been accepted. I will continue to wish the team well in their league campaign.

“I think for sanity to prevail and some kind of changes to take place my decision looks like the best option.

“My departure is certain to help the management to look into the way to make the team more competitive and vibrant, that’s my thinking,” said the former Enyimba and Enugu Rangers coach to supersport.com.

Emordi had just played nine matches with Abia Warriors with 11 points to show for his effort nine behind league leaders, Plateau United. (© supersport.com)
