Busoga United CEO Andrew Ndyabahika has reaffirmed that Diana Hope Nyago is still the club’s chairperson and her departure from Jinja SS will not affect the club.
Following her resignation as the Jinja SSS Head teacher in pursue of her political career, many thought that Nyago will relinquish her position as Busoga United FC chairperson as well.
Nyago is set to compete for parliamentary seat of Njeru Municipality Member of Parliament in the forthcoming 2021 general elections.
Appearing on Sanyuka TV, Ndyabahika clarified that Nyago’s departure as school’s headmistress has nothing to do with her position at the club.
“Madam (Nyago) resigned from the school not from club, just to take on her political ambitions, so she is still fully available as the club’s chairperson,” Ndyabahika stated.
“Busogo United is not a company limited by shares, its a company limited by guarantee, so there’s no way the school is complaining about shares and so the departure of Madam Nyago from her headteacher’s role will not affect the club at anytime.
“The relationship we have with the school which is the main sponsor was already guaranteed by founders and main guarantors which included Madam Nyago (leading guarantor), Robert Adotu (School Bursar), Samuel Mugabi (teacher at Jinja SSS), Oketcho Martin (Former teacher) and Fred Ggume (former chairman board of directors Jinja SSS).”
Ndyabahika also believes that the appointment of new head teacher will not affect the relationship between Busoga and Jinja SS and hopes that he will better Nyago in terms of the club-school partnership.
Ndyabahika also put it clear that the clubs is not going to be too much in the transfer window but they target to do better than last season.
“The club is not going to be in main stream transfer window because we are not a buying club, we are club that nature talents and our target this new because we really want to compete on the continent.”
Busoga finished fourth last season with 42 points from 25 games.
