Dream and desire for greatness took me to Kano Pillars - Ibrahim Mustapha

New kano pillars signing Ibrahim Mustapha has attributed his sojourn at the Nigeria professional football league (NPFL) campaigners to his desire and dream to achieve greatness in the round leather game.

Speaking with Godwin Wambebe, the former Kogi united football club of Lokoja attacker who shown like a million stars while under the payroll of the Confluence state Nigeria National League side last season said

" Everybody in this life wants to move to a higher pedestal in their chosen career and that has been my dream and desire since I settled for football as a career.

I have always had that burning desire in me to become a world class footballer and that spurred me into working hard and dreaming big to be where I am today"

When asked about the difference between the Nigeria National League and the Top flight league,the NPFL,the former First bank of Lagos player said the two leagues are not comparable as the real action takes place in the top flight

"We can't compare the NNL to the NPFL as the NPFL is the biggest league in Nigeria and that's where the action takes place with 20 strong teams battling for the league trophy alongside Continental slots to play in Africa.

These are all what makes the league thick and formidable"

The player who scored four goals for Kogi united last season attributed the success he recorded within the short period at Kogi united to God almighty and the efforts of his former Coach at the confluence side,Coach tunde Abdulrahaman and the management especially the club's chairman,Nigeria's ex-international Mall Abdul Sule

"When God is on your side, everything you do prosper tremendously. 

I thank God and my former club chairman and coach for where I am today.So many people are looking for this opportunity even with money but to no avail,but here I am today,an NPFL player"

Ibrahim Mustapha Singaro advice players he left behind in the lower league not to give up hope but to pray and work hard with determination as that is the only factor that can brings success and greatness.

My advice to my colleagues is that day should continue to work hard and pray fervently as that's the only success tip that opens the doorway to greatness.

The sai masu gida will open their 2017/2018 Nigeria professional football league season away from home against another Northern team,Katsina united in katsina in the match day 1 fixtures.
