Kano Pillars have congratulated Wikki Tourists for clinching a ticket to next year’s CAF Confederation Cup, noting the Bauchi club will be great flag bearers for Nigeria.
Wikki finished third in the Nigeria league past season to qualify for the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup.
In a congratulatory message signed by Pillars spokesman Idris Malikawa, Pillars said Wikki have been consistent and deserved to qualify for the Confederation Cup.
Pillars said they can now go ahead and be worthy representatives of Nigeria next year.
“We are all proud of what Wikki Tourists have achieved this season,” the message read in part.
“They should now prepare well for the Confederation Cup, a competition no Nigeria club has ever won.
“We promise to give them total support in their quest for international glory next year.”
Pillars have also congratulated champions Enugu Rangers and runners-up Rivers United.
