The League Management Company (LMC) organisers of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) have announced that they are yet to get the order to reinstate Giwa FC.

An interim order from the Plateau State High Court a few weeks ordered the LMC to reinstate Giwa Fc to the NPFL.

Giwa FC in May 2016 were expelled by  the LMC from the 2016/17 season due to a breach of NPFL Framework & Rules as they failed to honour three cumulative fixtures without acceptable reason.

LMC have however revealed that they are yet to get the order from the court.

For the avoidance of any doubt, LMC states categorically, that it has not been served with any such order and is consequently unable to comment on this matter,” the LMC said in a statement.

If such an order is at any time in the future produced or served on it by due process of law, LMC wishes all our Clubs, footballers, fans, partners and all Nigerians to be reassured that it shall take all steps appropriate  in the circumstances to protect the integrity of the NPLF.”

The Chris Giwa owned club was banished to Ilorin to play three consecutive home games after disturbances in its match day 12 game.

They were also fined the sum of N250, 000 as expenses for stadium hire, security and other logistics the LMC incurred for the match against Enyimba and also N10m for failing to honour that fixture with Enyimba, Giwa FC.
