Wikki Tourists FC have unveiled Ali Zubairu Abdullahi as their new technical adviser.
Zubairu, who replaces Bala Nikyu, penned a one-year deal with the northeast club on Friday.
The well-versed tactician worked under Abdul Maikaba as chief coach at Akwa United, where he helped the Uyo-based club win the 2017 Aiteo Cup and reach the play-off round of the 2018 CAF confederations cup.
He has also worked under Kadiri Ikhana and Samson Unuanel at Giwa FC and Kwara United respectively.
Wikki Tourists finished on the 14th position with 29 points in the 2017-18 Nigeria Professional League, which ended abruptly in August, after just 24 rounds of matches.
