Officials Suspended For Allegedly Sabotaging League Matches

NFF in a communiqué signed by the first vice president Chief Obinna Ogba, have appointed a six man committee to oversee the running of the league till the last day of the season.

The Nigeria Football Federation on Monday suspended the league management company for failing to hold Week 26 round of games in the Nigeria Professional Football League.

NFF in a communiqué signed by the first vice president Chief Obinna Ogba, have appointed a six man committee to oversee the running of the league till the last day of the season.

The six man committee charged with the running of the league and elections into a new board of the Nigeria Premier League comprise ex-international Tijani Babangida, former NPL chairman Rumson Baribote, Okey Ibe, Isaac Danladi, Babangida Little and Tunji Babalola.

The EXCO also set up a five man reconciliatory committee which has been mandated to reconcile all the aggrieved parties and factions of the football house.

They include Gen, Dominic Oneya as Chairman, former NFA chairman, Alh. Ibrahim Galadima (member), Chief Gabriel Chukwuma Gabros (member), Elder Dickson Adejube (member) and Prof. Onje Gyewado (member)

It also set up a four man committee in the likes of Chris Ekong, O. Olaniyan, Alh. Inuwa Umar and Sunday Okayi to investigate the LMC and Nigeria Referees Association (NRA) for allegedly sabotaging league games.

Effiong Johnson, Adama Yahaya and Christian Emeruwa are charged to finalise plans for the federation’s movement into a new secretariat.

It further allayed fears of FIFA ban on the country after the World Football Governing body wrote the Federation last week, stating that it should put the house in order.
