30 January 2014, 18:11Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Nigerian Premier League champions, Kano Pillars have confirmed the appointment of Okey Emordi as the club’s new technical adviser.

Emordi, who resigned from Enugu Rangers at the end of the 2012/13 season, has now replaced Mohammed Baba Ganaru who has headed to Nasarawa United.

Media Officer of Pillars, Idris Malikawa told News24 Nigeria that the announcement was made by chairman of the club, Abba Yola.

Yola said Emordi’s appointment is based on the approval of the state governor, Rabi'u Musa Kwankwaso as requested by the board.

He added that the governor has approved the release of money for the team to prosecute the first stage of the CAF Champions League home and away games.

Pillars begin their Champions League campaign away to As Vita of DR Congo in February.

Emordi led Enyimba to win the CAF Champions League in 2004.
